To highlight the important role parents play in their children’s academic success, the Florida Department of Education is hosting a video contest for parents. Please feel free to distribute the following information to schools and parent groups. The winner will receive a family four-pack of tickets to LEGOLAND and overnight hotel accommodations. Finalists will receive $50 Visa gift cards. The official contest flyer is available here: 2013 Parental Involvement in Education Video Contest
Here is some additional information about the contest.
All Florida parents are encouraged to participate. Do you volunteer in your child’s classroom, create learning activities at home or come up with creative ways to stay involved? These are just a few ideas for your video entry.
Submissions must be no longer than 45 seconds and convey how you stay involved and engaged in your child’s education. Submit your video entry by tweeting the video (or video link) to @educationfl or posting the video on the department’s Facebook page by Wednesday, November 27, 2013. Remember, videos do not have to be professional quality.
If you have any questions or concerns, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
