Nirelle Ksena Sitchoa, a recent Gainesville High School graduate, competed in the 46th annual ACT-SO competition in Boston as part of the 114th National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) National Convention July 26 to 29. Over 400 students from 24 states and the District of Columbia competed this year. Sitchoa competed in Drawing.

Nirelle Ksena Sitchoa’s trip to Boston for the competition was an all-expense paid trip, where she met talented students from all over the United States similarly motivated and made contacts for future endeavors. Sitchoa did not medal in the Drawing category.

“Each year we are honored to recognize and reward the achievements and ambitions of our youth; to see them bring their ideas to life, compete, and begin their journey to becoming leaders in STEM, humanities, business and the arts,” said Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO.

“ACT-SO is an adventure, ACT-SO is an experience and above all ACT-SO is an opportunity. It is an adventure because you meet peers from across the county with similar interest and with diverse backgrounds. It is an experience that provides that platform for youth to display their talents and greatness. This is your opportunity to present your very best because you are the very best,” said Barbara Boiling-Williams,
ACT-SO NAACP Board Committee Chair.
