Public School Academy Photo Contest

Stakeholders from SVSU charter schools (school leaders, teachers, staff) have the opportunity to win a cash prize for their school for submitting photos of student learning, experiences, and activities that illustrate the theme of the year. Each photo must include a caption (1-3 sentences that links the photo to the theme).

2024 Theme - Seek and Ye Shall Find

At the School/University Partnership Office (SUPO) we believe that access to quality education is empowerment for all. A quality education welcomes all, fosters creativity, and entitles learners to grow into their most authentic selves. As every difference is an asset, education should always be a celebration of diverse views and people.
