Gold, silver and bronze medalists were announced during the NAACP's 98h Annual Convention being held in Detroit through Thursday, July 12.
ACT-SO is a yearlong enrichment program designed to recruit, stimulate, improve and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African American high school students. Gold medalists at the local level qualify for the national finals held at the NAACP convention each summer.
