One of the most significant moments in Major League Baseball (MLB) history was when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier on April 15, 1947. In celebration of the anniversary of this momentous event, the Pittsburgh Pirates invite your school/organization to participate in the Jackie Robinson Art, Essay and Poetry Contest.
The contest, which is open to students in grades three through eight in the greater Pittsburgh region, challenges students express their thoughts creatively about Robinson's nine values for success in either piece of art, a poem or an essay.
JACKIE ROBINSON'S NINE VALUES OF SUCCESS INCLUDE:
COURAGE, DETERMINATION, TEAMWORK, PERSISTENCE, INTEGRITY, CITIZENSHIP, JUSTICE, COMMITMENT AND EXCELLENCE.
