Student Voice Video Contest

Students I encourage you to participate in this contest!

You can also watch the promotional video here.  

1. Get a team

2. Think of some ideas
Not sure where to start? Take a look at these idea-starters to help you get thinking:
  • What would make school awesome? How would you set up the structure of learning so that you couldn’t wait to get there everyday?
  • Tell us about a time you lost track of time learning something new. Maybe you were practicing a physical or musical skill or spent hours trying to understand a complex science or math concept. Maybe you had a great time researching an idea or person that you admire or built or fixed something with your own hands. Whatever it was, you worked hard and you did it! You stretched yourself, learned a lot and felt that rush of accomplishment. How could school be set up so that kind of learning happened all day for everyone?
  • Imagine there has never been a thing called school – ever before – and the community decided today that we needed to help young people prepare for adult life. What would you need to learn? Where would the best learning take place? Who should do the teaching?  How would it work?
3. Submit your video by midnight on Nov. 2

4. Be sure to follow the rules.  

Win some cash!
