Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics

ACT-SO is a major youth initiative of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). ACT-SO provides a forum through which youth of African descent demonstrate academic, artistic and scientific prowess and expertise, thereby gaining the same recognition often only reserved for entertainers and athletes. ACT-SO is rooted in the firm conviction that all students can succeed and compete at the same or superior levels as their counterparts in classrooms, boardrooms and laboratories across this nation and abroad.
