BLAC partnered with the Lombard Historical Society for the Sheldon Peck Art and Essay Contest. This contest was open to public and private school students from PreK to 12th grade in Lombard, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, and Villa Park. 

Students created an original work of art or essay response inspired by the art and activism of Sheldon Peck and of artists today. Winners received prizes and were honored at an awards ceremony and BLAC's multicultural art festival.
