On this momentous occasion, the 100th year of our fraternity’s history it is important to take this time to sit back and reflect on the journey it has been, the struggles we’ve encountered, the accomplishments and how far our fraternity has come. Noting that this journey was not trotted alone but with a community that stood strong in support and action. In this event we come together as a community to celebrate not just a fraternity but the vision and goals of which it has championed over these many years, and of which we all have strived to make possible.
In addition we’ll have a stacked lineup of from community leaders to prominent members of the fraternity. We will also be featuring a live band performance. Through the duration of the event we welcome you to enjoy the wonderful banquet provided and network with the many professionals in attendance. At the conclusion of the ceremony we welcome everyone to come out to the dance floor and continue the celebration.

In February 2014 Twin Cities high school students will compete for a total of $1,750 in scholarships at the Black History Month Science Fair hosted by the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated – Zeta Nu Sigma graduate & professional Chapter. Currently, the success of Black and African American youth in fields of STEM is severely disproportionate in comparison to the success of others in those same fields. With this initiative it is our goal to provide an opportunity for culturally relevant academic competition that students would not otherwise be invited to experience. Cultural relevance combined with competition as well as social and fiscal reward will create an environment where students can draw on their cultural frames of reference to bring personal relevance to their projects. This will allow for participants as well as their peers to more deeply internalize information. In addition, we will distribute scholarships that uplift youth of the Twin Cities by demonstrating a tangible investment of time, energy and finance to encourage and prepare them for success in the near and distant futures.
To maintain a Twin Cities community that sustains a thriving pipeline to drives all of our students from classrooms to colleges and careers of their choice.
Exposing Twin Cities high school students to academic competition that connects the science, technology, engineering & mathematics (STEM) concepts to cultural history.
The Black History Month Science Fair provides an experience that will help Twin Cities high school students recognize that their individual success is important to the vitality of the community. With new knowledge and understanding, our students can make well informed decisions about college and career. These three principles guide our work:
- Investment: Giving time, energy and other resources to develop a prosperous community.
- Alliance: Connecting community assets to highlight strengths of emerging leaders and drive their success.
- Inclusiveness: Working with people from a variety of backgrounds in order to accomplish goals and be accountable to those served.
