1. Here’s news of an exciting scholarship competition from Black Fives and the New York Historical Society:

"The Black Fives exhibition, on view March 14-July 20, 2014, commemorates the pre-NBA history of early pioneering African American basketball teams, players, and contributors whose efforts helped change society and pave the way for the modern game.

To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, the New-York Historical Society is conducting a scholarship contest for metropolitan area high school students. We’re asking them to submit original essays, videos or photographs on the theme of using basketball to achieve a bigger social or community cause. The winner in each category will be given $1,000 to be used toward college tuition.

Entries should answer the question: How has basketball profoundly changed New York City history, United States history, or your own personal history?

The deadline for submissions is February 24, 2014. A panel of distinguished judges will review the entries and announce winners for each category.”
