HART Celebrates Black History Month!

UPDATE: The submission deadline has been extended until March 7, 2021!

HART’s annual Black History Month campaign is an outreach effort targeted to local schools every February to educate students about African Americans who have changed history. 

The theme for 2021 is the representation, identity, and diversity of “The Black Family.” An educational video produced by HART will cover topics about The Black Family, including heads of the family, types of family relationships, and various family backgrounds.

The presentation also introduces public transportation to youth at an early age with a virtual tour around and inside a specially-wrapped bus. 

Youth are invited to enter HART’s Black History Month Contest with their own video, essay, or drawing to apply what they learned from the video.

Student can use this form to submit their entry. All entries must be received by Sunday, February 28, 2021, and will be entered into a raffle to win a HART 31-day pass. Four winners will be chosen.

The option is available for teachers to have HART staff present the video live to their virtual classrooms to allow for interaction.

All submissions may pick up a special Black History Month commemorative giveaway with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at Marion Transit Center (1211 N. Marion St.) or University Area Transit Center (13110 N. 27th St.) during window hours as a 'thank you' for entering our contest and encouraging civic involvement. 

Customers and the general public will see HART's Black History Month celebration shared through multi-media elements including bus stop shelter ads, on-board the bus, and HART's social media channels.
