Joppatowne High School student among winners of 33rd Annual Champions of Courage Essay Contest
Tito Mayungbe, a freshman at Joppatowne High School, is one of 20 Baltimore-area students who will appear on WBFF-TV FOX 45 saluting their personal heroes during Black History Month this February. The students are finalist in the 33rd annual “Champions of Courage” Black History Month Essay Competition.
More than 3,000 entries were received from middle and high schools - public, private, and parochial - throughout the Baltimore metro area. The competition challenged students in grades 6-12 to write a brief essay saluting their personal “Champion of Courage” … a positive role model who has touched their lives by sharing the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The top 20 finalists will share their salute to their Champions of Courage with FOX45, The CW and My TV viewers during January and February. Each will be honored and presented with a $100 prize at an Awards Breakfast at Martin’s West on February 1. At the awards breakfast, the top three essayists will be announced and will win more than $3,000 in scholarships and cash prizes for their schools.

Congratulations to Tito on this special honor!
