Super School Video

Our Middle School Students have submitted an entry into this competition!

Good things are happening in North Carolina’s public schools!

The North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) is asking middle school students to express their thoughts and ideas about What’s Super About Public Schools through its second student video contest. Public middle schoolers are invited to submit a 30-45-second video that conveys the contest theme. The top 3 videos will win recognition for their respective schools. The top 3 videos, along with those identified by the judges as Honorable Mentions, will be posted on NCSBA’s YouTube site.


Videos will be judged on how well they address the topic, as well as the quality of the production and the creativity of the video. No professional assistance can be provided to produce the video. The format of the video is up to the students. Videos can be a commercial, news broadcast, music video, etc.

S.W. Snowden serves about 200 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade . The students come from Beaufort County communities in and around Aurora, Edward, and Blounts Creek. The school's history can be traced back over several years and it has been restructured several times. In 1970, the Aurora school was renamed S. W. after Mr. Seward Webb Snowden who was a dedicated principal from the 1940s to the 1960s.
