Principal Financial Group is inviting high school students in the U.S. to participate in the EVERFI Black History Month Challenge, a first-of-its-kind national scholarship competition to inspire students and spark critical conversations. The challenge runs through February and was created by EVERFI, an innovator in social impact education, to help students in grades 9-12 understand the Black experience through perspectives, successes and struggles. Students will complete four digital lessons and compete in a capstone essay contest, in which they’re invited to share a plan for fostering conversation about Black history in their communities year-round. EVERFI will award a total of $20,000 in scholarships to three winners of the challenge. Students can learn more and participate at this program link.
