VIDEO CONTEST 2017/2018
Today, the Iowa School Safety Alliance (ISSA) announced the winners of its 2017’s “See Something, Say Something” video contest. The contest, sponsored by Electronic Engineering, urged students to create a 90 second video focused on that theme and that correlated 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 were invited to the Capitol to meet Governor Reynolds and take part in the signing of the Iowa Safe Schools Week proclamation.
Mark Clark, President of Electronic Engineering, awarded checks to the top two winners. This is Electronic Engineering’s second year sponsoring the event. Abraham Lincoln High School located in Council Bluffs won first place. Dowling Catholic High School, located in West Des Moines, won second place.
“It’s important we raise awareness and keep school safety top of mind,” Clark said. “The video contest is a fun way to engage students in the mission of school safety. It’s amazing to see what they come up with and we’re happy to help sponsor something so important to our communities statewide.”
Electronic Engineering works with schools on their emergency communication technology and preparedness. The two winners will take home bragging rights and a check to their school.
The winning video will be used in the statewide See Something Say Something campaign.
