More than two dozen entries from across the state were submitted and judged by independent media professionals. The contest, which ran from February 1 to April 5, 2018, encouraged public middle and high schools to submit 30- to 60-second commercials about excellence in their school(s). The contest was sponsored by AASB and Fairbanks LLC, as well as by Alabama Public Television through an American Graduate grant funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

The winning videos will be shown Thursday, June 14 at the Alabama State Board of Education’s 10 a.m. meeting at the Gordon Persons Building in Montgomery and on December 8 at 8:30 a.m., during the annual AASB Convention at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham - The Wynfrey Hotel, where winners will be recognized on stage and receive their prize money. The student-produced videos will be posted on APT’s website, www.aptv.org, and on AASB’s website and social media platforms.

“This year’s entries once again showcased the many extraordinary ways Alabama’s public schools are working to achieve excellence. Whether it’s visual and performing arts, STEM or athletics, you’ll find talented and creative students striving for their best and hardworking teachers pushing them to succeed,” said AASB President James Woosley.
