Elizabeth Min, a junior from Decatur High School, was one of five Washington public high school students awarded with $1,000 scholarships for submitting videos telling why they “opt in for a better education,” Ready Washington announced this week. Additionally, each student selected his or her favorite teacher to receive a $200 Visa gift card.

Ready Washington received videos from all around the state, representing eight of the state’s nine Educational Service District regions. A committee of judges from the Ready Washington coalition selected the winners based on content, creativity and video quality.

The goal of the Opt In for Student Success project is to build the student voice to talk about the importance of a high-quality education, the value of assessments and being prepared for college and career.
