We are so proud to see students in Channel One Schools making a real difference in their communities and strengthening their school spirit! Here are some videos and photos of these amazing initiatives.
Share in the comments section below which one is your favorite.
First up, students from schools in Illinois, Missouri, West Virginia and Wyoming sent in photos of the way they’re making an impact in their communities through food drives and fundraisers.
In Illinois, students at Dupo Junior High School organized a community food drive for their local food pantry. They ended up collecting over 550 items!
At Jarrett Middle School in Springfield, Missouri, the National Junior Honor Society raised $750 for Harmony House, a domestic violence shelter.
In Wyoming, 8th grader Ryan Deutsch collected over $1,000 to send care packages to soldiers serving around the world.
In West Virginia, the 7th and 8th grade student council at Taylor County Middle School raised $530 for childhood cancer research and the local food shelter.
And here are some videos that our viewers sent in. The first video was created by Mississippi’s Hernando High School Interact Club, in collaboration with the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy. The goal of the Uptown Blue music video is to raise awareness for autism (the color blue is used in campaigns by autism organizations across the US).
This next video is by Lewisville High School in Texas. The school’s Killough Circle of Friends created the “Sink the R-word” campaign aiming to encourage all students to ban the derogatory use of the word “retard.”
In the spirit of bashing offensive labels, Abilene Middle School in Kansas put together this lip dub, empowering students to “shake it off,” be themselves and have fun. Check it out!
And the last one comes from Blackhawk High School in Pennsylvania. Students and faculty created this elaborate lip dub presenting over 50 different student groups at the school! The video showcases the unity at Blackhawk High and surely lifts the school spirit.
