Six talented students in the Birmingham metro area are winners of the Juneteenth essay contest sponsored by Summit Media and Alabama Power, taking home book scholarships and/or financial awards to be used at the college of their choice.

Justin Ragland, Promotions, Marketing and Event director of Summit Media, said the winners provided original content that honored the enduring history and mission of Juneteenth. President Joe Biden signed a bill June 17, 2021 that established Juneteenth as a federal holiday.

“We always have and will continue to pay tribute to our African American community,” said Ragland, who, for two decades has promoted Summit Media’s six Birmingham radio stations. “Great achievements of African Americans are woven into the fabric of Alabama and American history. We pay homage to the culture in education, sports, politics, science and business, and now it’s our time to help pave the way for our Birmingham metro area students by securing their future and higher education.”
