Last year, the Ready Washington coalition ran a proactive, positive, upbeat awareness campaign called “Opt In for Student Success.” The campaign used student voices to explain the value of assessments and being prepared for college, work, and life.
After a successful 2016 campaign, we’re back for year two! Announcing the 2017 “Opt In for Student Success” Contest.
Here’s how the contest works:
1. Any Washington public high school student records a video (max 30 seconds) that includes the phrase, “I opt in for a better education because…”
2. The student uploads the video to any social media site (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo)
3. The student fills out this form and includes a link to the publicly-viewable video as well as the name of a special high school educator
The video submission deadline is Friday, February 17th. After that date, a committee will select the best five videos (based on content, video/sound quality, and creativity), and those students will earn a $1,000 scholarship. AND the nominated educator will receive a $200 Visa gift card!
