OPSBA’s “I ❤️ Public Education Video Contest”
In an effort to showcase the diversity of voice in public schools across the province, OPSBA is welcoming students, staff, and school communities to submit a short clip (three to five seconds) holding a small sign with the phrase/image: “I ❤️ Public Education”.
Participants can write this in their “first language” (which may or may not be English) or any non-English language typically spoken at home.
The submissions will be used to create a two to three minute video showing the full range of diversity of ages, faces, voices, and places that make up our provincial public schools, and their collective love of learning and the shared values of public education.
Rules and Prizes
Although OPSBA encourages participation from all those involved in the education system, the contest winners will be selected from student submissions. The contest is open to any student from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 in Ontario.
All students who submit a clip will be automatically entered into a prize draw for one of five $50 Indigo e-gift cards.
The deadline for this contest is May 31, 2022 at 5 p.m.
The final video will be posted on OPSBA’s social media channels by mid-June.
Recording and Uploading Instructions
- The video can be recorded wherever you would like using a smartphone or any video device in standard video formats (.mp4, .avi, .mov, .m4v). You are encouraged to film at school, or any other location that is special to you and/or emblematic of your local community.
- All video files must be submitted through our contest Dropbox portal. Students must also submit their name, school, and school board with their video clips. The video clip’s file name must include this information in order for OPSBA to be able to contact the winners. (i.e. EthanWu_SmithPS_OCDSB)
