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.
Stevenson Elementary School stands out because we strive to educate the whole child by providing experiences they may not otherwise have opportunity to have. For example: We have our very own B's Garden and Pet Park. Within the park we have 3 fantail pigeons, several chickens, two kittens, and a rabbit. In our science lab with have a water dragon, a cockatiel and a rabbit. Our very own student Park Rangers are in charge of providing the necessary care our animals require. Our first annual Ag. Day was held on Oct. 2nd. We had 12 stations that all students rotated through: soybeans, maple syrup, home canning, cattle, horses, sheep, chickens, ducks and a variety of farming equipment were present. Our culminating activity was going to see a sheep herding demonstration held by Kentucky Down Under. We also participate in Logan County's CharacterWorks program. Each month we focus on a character trait and recognize students for exhibiting strong values and positive decision making. We communicate to students on a daily basis that their academic performance is vital to their success, but in addition to that, we make sure we are providing a variety of experiences so they can make real life connections.
