September is national Attendance Awareness Month, and BCPS wants to get students involved in spreading messages about why regular school attendance is so important.
BCPS students and student groups at every grade level are invited to make commercials, no more than 60 seconds long. Commercial submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015. Selected commercials will be shown on BCPS-TV and on the BCPS website, http://www.bcps.org, beginning in October 2015.
First place prizes of $100 each, provided by the Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools (from private business partners’ donations), will be awarded at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
