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.
Gifted and Talented Leadership students have raised over $1,000 for local charities and also provided boxes of supplies for other charities. The GT Leadership students are completely responsible for selecting a project and seeing the project to completion. Some of the charities that benefited in the first semester are: Salvation Army - over 50 Blessing Bags provided, Angel Tree children - over $700.00 raised, and the Humane Society - over $400.00 raised as well as boxes of needed supplies.
Great students, staff, parents, and community
