Common Core and Smarter Balanced Assessments






As part of the recent civic engagement initiative launched by the Santa ClaraCounty Office of Education (SCCOE) and its partners, students are being asked to tell their story about how they are civic-minded and can get others involved.


The SCCOE Civic Engagement PSA Video Contest is now open for all students in Santa Clara County. Students can enter as groups or individually in three grade-level categories: K-5, 6-8, and 9-12. The deadline to submit applications is September 23 and winning entries will be chosen in each of the three grade level categories.


For specific contest guidelines, objectives, and the official application, students can visit the website. Videos should address what civic engagement is and why it is important, with the goal of
motivating peers, family, and residents to get involved in their communities and take action on important causes and ideas. By participating in this contest, students can develop confidence to
be able to participate fully in civic life, understand and engage in the political processes, assume the roles, rights and responsibilities usually associated with citizenship in democratic systems, and much more.


Winners who finish in the top three places will receive a video production kit for their teacher and classroom, and each individual student will receive a gift card. An awards ceremony is planned for October 5.


This is a news item to test the system. Please disregard.
