Lakota staff, students and parents are invited to help celebrate a new school year by participating in our annual #WEareLakota First Day Photo Contest. Participating is as easy as posting your first day photos to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #WEareLakota and #WEareBetterTogether, and also tagging Lakota's account.

The owners of the three photos with the most votes, or "likes," after a full week of school (Aug. 25 at noon) will receive some #WEareLakota goodies. Plus, we’ll share the winning photos with the Lakota community through social media, Lakota Online and other district communications.

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, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #WEareLakota and #WEareBetterTogether. Be sure to also tag the Lakota Facebook page (@LakotaSchools), Twitter account (@LakotaDistrict) or Instagram account (@lakota_district).

  3. Share it with your friends to rack up the most “likes,” or votes. 

  4. Search for #WEareLakota on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram 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!
