About the Entry

In 90 seconds or less, Idahoans can learn about graduation rates or Idaho’s No. 1 education goal. Each video explains “why you should care” about the issue, “what’s the impact” on communities and the state overall, and “what’s the cost” to taxpayers.

Comments From the Judges

“Bravo. This is an example of easily digestible, short-form, social media-friendly work that packs more punch because of those qualities. A great way to boil down a massive issue and inform taxpayers and voters about the stakes.”

“This is so crisp and distills complex information in a very accessible way so that parents and community members can understand the concerns as well as policymakers.”
