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.
BGCA is definitely a school of excellence. Our students excel in and out of the classroom! They have a heart for service for the community. Over the past semester our students have collected socks for seniors, volunteered at Hope House, collected food for HOTEL Inc., volunteered at HOTEL Inc., and performed a Veteran's Chapel at Village Manor (just to name a few). Our students are evolving and have a tremendous desire to impact the community for Christ. I would love to honor our kids and all of their hard work!!
Park City Elementary School stands out because we are on the road to Lighthouse status. We, as a team, provide opportunities for each student to become leaders and to be owners of a safe, learning environment. Our team doesn't stop with the principal and teachers, it also consists of parents, community leaders, volunteers and most importantly, the student leaders. The Leader in Me process has helped us to empower our students to become tomorrow's leaders today.
