The Cherokee County School District is sponsoring two contests to seek students’ help in encouraging mask usage among their classmates. CCSD students in grades 6-12 are invited to create and enter a short public service announcement-style video that educates students about the benefits of mask usage by students at school, and students in grades K-12 are invited to design and enter a poster promoting the same message. Entries for both contests are due January 19th and will be judged for message, quality and creativity.
For the video contest, one winner in Grades 6-8 and one winner in Grades 9-12 each will win a $300 Amazon gift card, and second place will win a $100 Amazon gift card. For the poster contest, one winner in each division - Grades K-5, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12 - each will win a $150 Amazon gift card, and a second-place winner in each division will win a $50 Amazon gift card. Prizes will be funded using donations from CCSD Partners. The winning videos and posters will be used in CCSD schools and on CCSD websites and social media to promote student mask usage.
