(HEMPSTEAD, NY) - The 100 Black Men of Long Island, Inc. will receive a $4,000 check from State Farm Insurance for its annual African American Academic History Challenge, to be presented at the organization’s headquarters on January 13, 2010.

“Educating our youth and supporting scholarships for future leaders will continue to be vital to our nation’s future!,” said Phil Andrews, President for The 100 Black Men of Long Island. “Corporate Support enhances our ability to fund Educational and Scholarship Programs designed to Enhance the Study of African-American History.”


Naomi T. Johnson,State Farm Coporate Public Affairs “Education, safety, and community development are key components in State Farm Insurance Companies' goal of helping to build strong, safe, educated communities,” said Naomi T. Johnson , a spokesperson for State Farm Insurance. “This commitment is reflected in our partnership with 100 Hundred Black Men of Long Island to empower our young people in their pursuit to learn about the history of African Americans. We are excited to support this annual African American Academic History Challenge.”

State Farm will present the $4,000 check during the 100 Black Men general membership meeting at 9 Centre Street Hempstead, New York 11550. The State Farm contribution to The Challenge will help fund Educational and Scholarship Programs.

The 100 Black Men will host its African American Academic History Challenge Competition in Melville, Long Island on April 10, 2010. The Challenge is an educational and scholarship program designed to enhance the study of African-American history, and is intended to increase interest among young people about the legacy left to them, and in living lives worthy of the legacy.

The Challenge spurs keen and heated competition, yet helps develop a competitive spirit within an experience that engenders mutual respect and admiration among competitors. The perspective is based upon the notion that able, prepared and dedicated people somehow develop an appreciation for each other’s abilities, even when certain ones excel to higher accomplishments. The result is development of an individual who knows, loves and appreciates him or herself, but who also admires excellence in others.
