The annual Character Key Video Contest incorporates the Keys and the most critical issues facing high school students as identified by the Seminole County Youth Commission (seminoleyouth.org). Based on two separate surveys (2009, 2010) of Seminole County high school students, the issues are drug and alcohol abuse, bullying, body image, conflict resolution, and depression.
All nine Seminole County public high schools participate in the contest. The nine competing videos are shown with the student teams and faculty advisers in attendance at the annual Character Key Awards Reception in April. The top three winners are announced. Each member of the winning team, their faculty adviser and their school receive the “Brighty” named after Bright House Networks. More than 160 community leaders attend. Many of the videos are shown in Seminole County high schools. The end result is students messaging to students.
The winning video premiers at the annual Leadership’s Community Leadership Celebration Luncheon in May. The students and their faculty advisers are introduced. 400 people in attendance.
Lake Brantley High School is Leadership Seminole 2016 Character Key Video Contest winner. Watch their masterpiece “Will you?” Title Sponsor Bright House Networks will edit the video into 30 and 60 second spots to air on the cable network 500 times.
