Lancaster – The Ohio University Lancaster Chapter of the Ohio Student Education Association received fourth place in the “Why is Public Education Important?” video contest held by the Patton College of Education on the Athens Campus. The award comes with a $250 cash prize.
“We encouraged members of OSEA to make the video because it is an important topic for our students to think about and discuss as they prepare to become teachers,” said OUL OSEA Advisor Terri Green.
“We are so proud of our students,” said Early Childhood Education Lecturer Debra Dunning. “This is a wonderful accomplishment.”
The following winners were announced by the college last week:
First place: This is Not Green (Adiy Tweissi)
Second place: Support Your Public Schools (Chris Pinchot)
Third place: Why We Need Public School (Melissa Abban and Sarah Stroup)
Fourth place: Why Public Education is Important (Rachel Longnecker and Ohio Student Education Association (OSEA) at Ohio University Lancaster officers and members)
The competition was open to all current Ohio University students and student organizations. Students were asked to create a two to three minute video stressing the importance of public education. Videos were judged on quality, content, overall message and creativity.
The winners are invited to attend the Public Education Recognition Day, Tuesday, Feb. 24, 5-7 p.m. at the Margaret Walter Hall Rotunda in Athens.
After a meet-and-greet reception, Bill Phillis, Executive Director at Ohio Coalition for Equity & Adequacy of School Funding, will speak about supporting public schools. The winning videos from the “Why Public Education is Important?” video contest will be viewed, and the prizes will be distributed. The winners will have an opportunity to introduce their videos and explain their inspiration behind it.
The winning videos will also be posted on the Patton College YouTube site and shared via social media.
