OSBA Student Video Contest

Eighth Annual OSBA Stand Up for Public Schools Student Video Contest is Now Accepting Entries

OSBA is now accepting entries for the eighth annual Stand Up for Public Schools Student Video Contest. The contest is part of OSBA’s Stand Up for Public Schools promotional campaign (go to www.standupforOHpublicschools.com for more information) and is open to high school and junior high students in OSBA-member districts.

Schools are invited to submit a video (maximum length is 90 seconds) that conveys the contest’s theme — Stand up for Ohio Public Schools. Tell us how your school district and/or building is standing up for public education while making a difference in students’ lives and future success (Please note, points will be deducted from videos that do not include the Stand Up for Ohio Public Schools theme). The format is up to the students, but no professional assistance can be provided to produce the video. 

The top three videos will win prizes for their respective schools and will be posted on OSBA’s website and featured at OSBA's Capital Conference and Trade Show in November. The submission deadline is Oct. 4. Download the entry forms and packet of contest information.

With 44 out of a possible 48 points, the winner of the 2018 OSBA Stand Up for Public Schools Student Video Contest is Boardman Local (Mahoning) Schools. Upper Sandusky EV came in second and North Canton City was the third-place finisher.

In 2018, 63 videos were entered into the contest by Ohio students expressing their thoughts and ideas on how public schools make a difference. The three winning videos are posted below.
