You know it, and I know it…there are some AMAZING things happening on your campuses!  Now it’s time to invite students to tell the world about what makes their Texas Public School so special.  The Texas Association of School Boards is now accepting entries for its first ever Student Video Contest.

Original, student-created videos must be between 30 seconds and 2 minutes long and should focus on one of the four themes below:

  • What makes your school exceptional?
  • Why your school deserves the support of your community
  • How the funding cuts of the last Legislative session have affected your school
  • Why Texans should be proud of their public schools

This is a great opportunity for students to write, produce, and star in a movie that could have real impact on your community as well as their classroom.  First prize in each of 3 divisions is $5,000 – for classroom equipment and materials!
