More than two dozen entries from across the state were submitted and judged by independent media professionals. The contest, which ran from February 1 to April 5, 2018, encouraged public middle and high schools to submit 30- to 60-second commercials about excellence in their school(s). The contest was sponsored by AASB and Fairbanks LLC, as well as by Alabama Public Television through an American Graduate grant funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
The winning videos will be shown on December 8 at 8:30 a.m., during the annual AASB Convention at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham - The Wynfrey Hotel, where winners will be recognized on stage and receive their prize money.
