OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - February is Black History Month, and the Oklahoma City Thunder is inviting Oklahoma students to take part in its seventh annual Black History Heroes Challenge.

The contest will remain open through Feb. 7. Students in kindergarten through 12th grade from across the state can enter the contest by submitting an essay or visual arts piece portraying an outstanding individual in black history or an African-American who has impacted their life. Entrants are encouraged to employ creativity in their entries, including photography, music, video, art or writing.

Winners in each of five age groups will receive a Thunder prize pack, including four tickets to the Thunder vs. Denver Nuggets home game on Feb. 22, recognition at center court prior to the game, an autographed Thunder item and an award plaque.
