WBKO, an ABC affiliate, has partnered with Flora Templeton Stuart, Attorney at Law to launch a leadership event with Poppy to recognize schools who have empowered students to lead, learn, excel and serve our community. The chosen school and students will be recognized for outstanding achievement. All schools in south central Kentucky from grades K - 12 will have the opportunity to be recognized for empowering their students to lead by reaching their full potential in academics, sports, arts, and community service.
To win Poppy’s Field Trip, superintendents, principals, teachers, and full-time staff can nominate your school or school group throughout the year by filling out the online form below. WBKO will select nominated schools for voting by viewers. The school with the most votes will win Poppy’s Leadership Award and be featured on AM Kentucky.
Winning schools will be entered in a Grand Prize Drawing at the end of the contest period. The selected school will receive a $2,000 check to be used to promote leadership activities and/or ‘Leader in Me’ initiatives and programs.
Natcher is the first Lighthouse School in the state of Kentucky! We service students with many different needs including a diverse language population of over 20 different languages spoken. The culture and atmosphere of the building is extremely welcoming. We would be grateful for this opportunity!
Plano Elementary is an excellent school where children come first. Students and teachers are held to high expectations and the climate is high energy. As soon as you walk in Plano's doors, you will feel the love and warmth of our school. Students are well behaved as they demonstrate leadership skills.
