San Saba High School is competing in the “Texas Public Schools Rock!” student video contest sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB). The school’s submission is among more than 100 videos posted on the TASB Web Site at www.tasb.org that illustrate the value of Texas’ public education and emphasize the many positive things happening in our local schools.
The contest was open to all Texas elementary and secondary public school students, and winners will be selected in three categories: elementary school, middle/junior high school, and high school. First prize of $5,000 and a second prize of $2,500 in each category will be awarded in March for use in the students’ classroom or campus.
In addition, a Class Favorite in each of the three categories will be voted on March 4-8. The winners will be selected based on the videos most viewed by visitors to TASB’s Web Site during that week. Viewers must watch the entire video to completion to cast their votes. These winners will receive no monetary prize but may be included among the videos displayed statewide at various TASB events. Community members are encouraged to view all of the entries at tasb.org/services/communications/student_video/entries and share their favorites with their neighbors and friends.
“We are excited that our students have a way to showcase their creativity and enthusiasm for the great things happening in our district,” said Leigh Ann Glaze, superintendent. “Their voices underscore why all Texans should be proud of their public schools.” There are many stars in the video, but congratulations to the students working specifically on the video: Juan Ortega, Savannah Rios, and Allison Nettleship. Also, big thanks goes to the technology team including Milly Summy, Judy McCoy and Colleen Womack. Please take the time to go and vote so that SSHS will have a chance to win the contest!!!! Please call the central office or San Saba High School if you have any question.
