Share The Hope

Join us for our 2023 Hope Squad video contest! This year’s theme is Share the Hope!

As we navigate another school year together, we are challenging our Hope Squad members to Share the Hope through a video contest intended to encourage and inspire others on different ways they can spread hope throughout their community!

Sharing the Hope can be done in several ways: smiling at a peer in the hallway, helping a friend in need, or inviting someone to sit with you at lunch! These are just a few examples – the possibilities are endless! 

How to Enter

If you are a current Hope Squad member, we want to hear from you! Share your interpretation of what it means to “Share the Hope” as a Hope Squad member in a brief 30 second – 2 minute video. Your video can consist of anything! Original music, dance, theatre, art, poetry, a short film, animation, a speech, or any other school-appropriate creative outlet!
