The Black History Month (BHM) Banner Program provides the opportunity for members of the public to purchase a citizen recognition banner, and have it displayed on community light posts, throughout Black History Month. Thru this program we hope to highlight our esteemed African American citizens who have made significant contributions to Calhoun County whether they be political, social, or economical. These citizens have shaped Calhoun County into what it is today.
If you have someone you would like to see recognized with this project please submit the form, photo, and payment below.
Applications are accepted from March 1 - December 1 each year. Applications can be submitted using the form below. The application will be considered complete when form, payment, and photo have been received and will then be placed on the list for installation.
Each banner is double sided and contains 2 nominees. Cost per nomination (single side of a banner) - $60.00 *Please note: Banners will be displayed as even numbers are sold. We cannot print single sided banners so once we have nominees for both sides of the banner it will be displayed.
Every effort will be made by CCCF and the City of Blountstown to have banners installed on or before February 1st thru Feb. 28th each year.
