Lookout Valley Middle/High To Collect A $10,000 Grand Prize Check From POWERADE Contest

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Lookout Valley Middle/High School was selected as a winner in the POWERADE Power Your School contest and will receive two checks totaling $12,000 for its athletics department.  The school won a $10,000 grand prize and an additional $2,000 first prize in the contest.  Representatives from POWERADE will present the checks at a special pep rally at the school on Thursday at 1:30 p.m.

The POWERADE Power Your School contest requires schools to submit a video or essay that demonstrates why the school needs or deserves the cash prize.

A panel of judges rate school entries based on creativity and originality, how well the entry fits the theme of the school need, incorporation of POWERADE in the submission and the quality of the submission. POWERADE awarded 50 grand prizes of $10,000 to winning video submissions and 150 first prizes of $2,000 to winning videos or essays.
 
“Hard work, and powering through, is what creates a success story” is the theme of the video submitted by Lookout Valley.  You can watch the winning video on the Lookout Valley Broadcasting Youtube channel. The entry features basketball players powering through to win, but upgrades around the home basketball court could take the team to the next level. The video describes the school’s need of electric goal winches, backboards, and larger wall pads under the baskets. According to the video, these upgrades provided by funding from winning the contest will take Lookout Valley “over the top” to power through.
