The Iowa Safe Schools Alliance (ISSA) is sponsoring a video contest for Iowa high school students. The theme for the 2018-19 video contest is “What’s Your Plan”. Contestants submit a 90 second video that focuses on that theme and correlates with ISSA’s mission in assisting schools in preparing for, mitigating, responding to and recovering from natural and man-made threats and incidents.
The finalists will be invited to the Capitol to meet Governor Reynolds and also take part in the Iowa Safe Schools Week proclamation signing in March. The winner of the contest will take home $1,000 for their school. The second place winner will receive $600, and the third place winner will receive $400.
Sample topics could be identification of external or internal threats such as a student with a weapon, intruder, hazardous material spill outside the school, etc.
