2/16 The Heritage Club African-American Trivia contest is almost over. DId you get yesterday’s question and one step closer to the pizza party? The answer is Billie Holiday. Holiday actually has ties to Maryland and spent many years of her life in Baltimore where she is still honored including a vocal competition that has taken place in the past. And here is Friday's clue. If you have a pencil sharpener in your pencil pouch you can thank this man. He designed a simple hand cranked sharpener with a compartment to capture those pesky shavings. Who is the man who came up with the genius idea to make sure students would always be on point with their pencils? If you need to hear this once again ask your Social Studies teacher. Winners will be invited to enjoy a slice of pizza or two with the Heritage Club at the end of the month.

The Heritage Club’s African American Month trivia contest continues. The answer to yesterday’s question was Shirley Chisholm. Chisholm was not only the first black woman but the first African American to make a bid for president. Though this was the case, Chisholm said: "I am not the candidate of black America, although I am black and proud. I am not the candidate of the women's movement of this country, although I am a woman and I am equally proud of that. I am the candidate of the people, and my presence before you now symbolizes a new era in American political history."  

Today’s question comes from one of the oldest board games in the world. Chess is a game requiring great skill and intelligence. Maurice Ashley's skills recently earned him the honor of being inducted into the U.S. Chess Hall of Fame. He was also the first African American to reach the highest distinction in chess. What is this highest level of chess called? Once again, what is the title earned of a person who reaches the highest level in chess? If you think you know the answer send an email to Ms. Clifford or Ms. Abbas with your response. Make sure to include your full name and grade level. The top three students from each grade level will participate in a pizza party at the end of the month.
