We Have a Winner: Coalition Dance Video Contest for NSCW 2024

By January 23, 2024 News
As our kick-off for National School Choice Week, we are especially excited this year to announce the winner of the Coalition’s dance video contest!

And the winner is … Community Public Charter School!

On Saturday, we announced Community Public Charter School in Stanley, NC, as the winner of our NSCW dance video contest. Lindalyn Kakadelis, the Coalition’s executive director, broke the happy news to the CPCS Trailblazers in a call the day before. We really loved the video (here or below), and think you will, too. The CPCS video also made it into National School Choice Week’s newsletter yesterday!

Here’s to Community Public Charter School, and the awesome students, faculty, and staff! Dance teacher Christie Stuckey, a former member of East Carolina University’s Dance Team, led efforts to pull the video together. Kudos to Christie and to the CPCS community!

Shannon Parsons of CPCS shared the school’s response to winning the Coalition’s dance video contest:

“We’re still in disbelief! Participating in the School Choice Week’s dance video competition was an honor, and winning feels incredibly humbling. In just over a week, Miss Stuckey’s dance classes practiced, recorded, and nailed the dance, showcasing the dedication of both the teacher and students. This victory reflects the resilience of our school community, and we’re grateful for the opportunity. We look forward to what comes next and eagerly anticipate Miss Stuckey’s creativity for the next school choice week dance contest video!”
Community Public Charter School, the Coalition celebrates your school choice spirit—and your super-slick dance moves!
