It’s Time for your School to Grab the Spotlight

Image

With a new academic year quickly approaching, it’s a great time to get involved in all the activities your school has to offer. The High School Video Network promotes student involvement by giving schools their own unique channel to post videos of students in action. Every video posted shines a spotlight on a particular club, team, or event, and strengthens the bonds between schools, students, and the community. And the best part is that anyone in the school can get involved in the action—teachers, students, parents, and even alumni. All you need is a camera, phone, or any device that can record video. It’s a great way for students interested in film and media to get valuable hands-on experience, and help out their school while doing it! 

Here are some of the exciting and diverse videos currently on the HSVN site.

This behind-the-scenes look at the Granada High Dance Team illustrates the positive influence these girls have over each other and over the school community. And their boundless energy will get anyone pumped for a new school year!

The High School Video Network is easy, fun, and a great way to foster school spirit. So grab your device and start recording—it’s that simple! Click here to learn more about the HSVN and how your school can get involved.

Check Out the High School Video Network!

granada cheer

The students at our member schools are awesome! They’re creative and talented – and they’re using the High School Video Network to demonstrate their skills! For example, College Park High School student Jacob Skolnick produced this instructional video about how to properly fill and hang a hummingbird feeder. The nature footage is beautiful and Jacob’s instructions are clear and easy to follow.

The JV and varsity cheer squads at Granada High are amazing! They’ve got moves! And this video of the girls performing at a rally showcases their impressive talent. Nothing   gets you fired up like a good rally – and these girls know how to bring it!

California High School students produced this video documenting the experiences of classmates who took part in “It Happens,” a campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving. The video is informative and features some really eye-opening footage of what it’s like to be behind the wheel while you’re intoxicated.

HSVN is free for K12Rewards member schools and provides a powerful and unique tool for demonstrating the talents of the student body and keeping the school community connected. If your school isn’t a member, talk to a school administrator about joining!
