Voting opens in youth club's MLK Jr. art contest

Voting is now open in UScellular’s first annual Black History Month Art Contest in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Henderson County.

Boys & Girls Club of Henderson County members created original pieces of artwork representing influential Black STEM icons. These included historical figures, world leaders, scientists and educators who have made vital contributions to the world of science, technology, engineering and math. UScellular associates worked with Club members in January to begin their drawings.
