Socorro ISD named winner in statewide TASB video contest
The Socorro Independent School District won the top prize in the biennial Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Student Video Contest, which aims to showcase the strength and success of Texas public schools.
Three Texas school districts were selected as winners, with Socorro getting first place in the large district category and receiving a $5,000 prize.
School districts were challenged to create a one-minute promotional video for their schools with students as the stars. The videos focus on what makes public schools the best choice while highlighting the success of individual school districts.
TASB Executive Director Dan Troxell said he always looks forward to seeing the Student Video Contest entries. “Watching these videos brings such joy. It’s a great reminder of why we do what we do and the great things happening in public schools across the state every single day,” he said.
The contest was open to all Texas school districts, and winners were selected in three categories based on average daily attendance (ADA):
Large district: 5,001 or more ADA
Medium district: 1,601-5,000 ADA
Small district: No greater than 1,600 ADA
Entries were judged on creativity, message, and technical quality.
