Our back-to-school photo contest is back by popular demand – and with a new twist.

Lakota staff, students and parents are invited to help celebrate a new school year, and Lakota’s new hashtag, with our #WEareLakota First Day Photo Contest!

Participating is as easy as posting your first day photos to Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #WEareLakota and tagging the Lakota Facebook page (@LakotaSchools) or Twitter account (@LakotaDistrict).

The owners of the three photos on Facebook and Twitter with the most votes, or "likes," after a full week of school (Aug. 24 at noon) will receive a #WEareLakota T-shirt. Plus, we’ll share the winning photos with the Lakota community through social media, Lakota Online and other district communications.

The new school year begins Wednesday, August 16. 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.

It's a fun and easy way to celebrate our students’, staff’s and even parents’ smiles on the first day of school.

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 or Twitter using the hashtag #WEareLakota. Be sure to also tag the Lakota Facebook page (@LakotaSchools) or Twitter account (@LakotaDistrict).
  3. Share it with your friends to rack up the most “likes,” or votes. 
  4. The owners of the three posts getting the most likes on Facebook will receive a #WEareLakota T-shirt; the top three winners on Twitter will also receive a T-shirt.
  5. Search for #WEareLakota on Facebook or Twitter 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!
