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.
BGJHS has a statewide recognized STLP (Student Technology Leadership Program) that provides a daily news broadcast and an online and print newspaper. As School Leaders, the students develop, produce, record and distribute all aspects of the news. The BGJHS student body views the daily news broadcast in their classrooms and each student and faculty member receives a copy of the printed Purple Spirit paper free of charge. Students learn broadcasting and print news techniques (journalism) in courses designed to enhance student leadership and student achievement. All publications are available to parents and our community.
Great students, staff, parents, and community.
