First Day photo contestThe new school year begins Thursday, August 15. So get ready to capture those special first day moments at the front stoop, at your bus stop, with your carpool group, or in your classroom.

Lakota staff, students and parents are invited to help celebrate a new school year by participating in our #WEareLakota First Day Photo Contest. Participating is as easy as posting your first day photos to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #WEareLakota and #WEareInThisTogether, and also tagging Lakota's account.

The owners of the three photos with the most votes, or "likes," after a full week of school (Aug. 23 at noon) will receive a #WEareLakota spirit basket. Plus, we’ll share the winning photos with the Lakota community through social media, Lakota Online and other district communications.

It’s Easy to Participate:

  1. Whether you’re a student, a parent or a staff member, determine what part of your first day you want to capture and share with others.

  2. Post your photo to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #WEareLakota and #WEareInThisTogether. Be sure to also tag the Lakota Facebook page (@LakotaSchools), Twitter account (@LakotaDistrict) or Instagram account (@lakota_district).

  3. Share it with your friends to rack up the most “likes,” or votes.

  4. Search for #WEareLakota on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to see the full gallery of entries and cast your votes.


Here’s to a great new school year - and lots of your photos to help document the first day back!
