2018–2019 Student Video Contest

Lights, camera, action!

Thanks to everyone who submitted a video. We are now moving into the judging phase of the contest, and will announce the winners in March. Stay tuned!

Rural, urban, big, small—no two Texas public schools are the same but each one is excellent in its own way, and we want to celebrate that!

Collaborate with your classmates to come up with a creative video telling the world:

  • What you love about your school
  • What makes your school a special place
  • Why Texas public schools are awesome

Want to know what it takes to win?

  • Take a look at the winners from the Student Video Contest in 2017 to get some ideas.
  • Read over the contest rules and details before you get started.
  • Check out the guidelines (pdf) used for the judging process to find out what the judges will be looking for.
  • Submit your entry form today! (The 2018-19 contest deadline has passed.)

Although we provide you with the basic guidelines, there are no clear-cut instructions for creating a winning video. Put your heart into it and collaborate with classmates to create a genuine and unique video featuring your school to show everyone why they should stand behind Texas public schools.
