U.S. Cellular is sponsoring a drawing contest to celebrate Black History Month.

Children from the boy's and girl's club of Morgantown submitted drawings of black role models who inspired them.

Sales manager of U.S. Cellular, Michael Walton, said the store is thrilled to play a part in this contest.

"We really enjoy being involved with the boy's and club and representing the black history portrait contest. It gives the youngsters at the boy's and girl's club an opportunity to represent what they've learned about black history as well as an opportunity for them to earn prizes," Walton said.

You can vote for your favorite drawing at U.S. Cellular locations in Sabraton or Granville.

The first place winner will receive $500, second place will get $200, and third place will be awarded $150.

Voting ends February 28.
