2022 #PlanYourPathWA Student Video Contest

What are your education and career dreams, and how are you going to get there? Tell us and you could win $500! 

***NEW DEADLINE: MAY 4, 2022***

Ready Washington is launching our seventh annual video contest to get high school students thinking and talking about their education and career goals. If you are a Washington public high school student (or if you know one), please keep reading!

Ready Washington believes every student in our state should graduate high school prepared for a successful future––on the education and career path they choose––and we offer tools and resources to support them on that path. The goal of this contest is to elevate student voice and motivate all students to think about their futures and consider the people and resources that are available to help.

Here’s how the contest works:

  1. Record Video: Record a video (max 1 minute) answering the following question:

Tell us what you want to do after graduation and three steps in your High School and Beyond Plan that will help you reach that goal. For consideration as a winning video, students must specifically reference the High School and Beyond Plan in their video. 

  1. Upload Video: Upload the video to any digital platform (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, or Vimeo). Tag us (@ReadyWA on FB and Twitter, @ReadyWashington on Instagram), and use the hashtag #PlanYourPathWA
  2. Fill Out This Form
  3. Win $500: A committee will select the 5 best videos, and each of those students will win a $500 scholarship. Winning students will also be able to nominate a teacher, who will receive a $100 Visa gift card. See judging criteria here.

The deadline to enter is Wednesday, May 4, 2022. If you have any questions, please email info@readywa.org.
