COMMUNITY RELATIONS <br />4250 (also 2570, 3412) Page 1 of 1 <br /> Bonneville Joint School District No. 93 <br />CONTESTS FOR STUDENTS <br /> <br />Contests may be made available to students by outside organizations through the schools, subject to certain limitations. The Administrator shall determine that the <br />contest is not in conflict with nor will it diminish the primary educational aims of the <br />schools and that it meets the needs and interests of students. <br /> <br />The schools shall confine their participation to those national contests which are currently placed on the approved list published annually by the Committee on National <br />Contests and activities of the National Association of Secondary School Principals. <br /> <br />Guidelines <br /> <br />Contests will not be allowed unless they further the educational goals of the District. <br /> <br />A state or local contest in which students participate shall be: 1. One that supplements and does not interfere with the regular school program. <br /> <br />2. One that is beneficial to youth in education, civic, social or ethical development. <br /> 3. One that makes it possible for individual students to work out contributions by their own efforts and does not invite dishonest collaboration. <br /> <br />4. One whose subject is not commercial, controversial, sectarian or concerned with <br />propaganda. It must emphasize high moral standards, good citizenship and intellectual competence. <br />5. One from which no contestant shall be excluded because of race, color, creed, sex <br />or payment of entry fee. <br /> 6. One which does not place an undue burden on students, teachers or the school, nor requires frequent or lengthy absence of participants from the school. <br /> <br />7. One sponsored by an organization engaged in a creditable or acceptable enterprise <br />regardless of kind or amount of prizes offered. The contest or activity must not be used as a “front” for advertising a company name or product. <br />Adopted 03-09-2005 Reviewed 01-17-2018 Revised <br /> <br />Cross Reference: Student Clubs and Organizations #3382 <br /> Extended Out-of-District or Overnight Travel #2555 <br /> Elementary Field Trips #2560 <br /> Activity Trip Transportation #8200 <br /> Bus Supervision of Activity and Field Trips #8210 <br /> Transportation of Students in Private Vehicles #8270
