Calling All Celebrities: Share the Importance of Kids Trying Their Best in a Video (& Make 2 Principals Sleep on the Roof)!

Willington Public Schools is a small town with big ambition. Students are coming up to an opportunity to shine on the Smarter Balanced Test. School principals Phil Stevens and Ken Craig are trying to encourage students to try their best. “We know our kids are ready! We want them to know how important it is to try their best.” 

To help get kids motivated, Phil and Ken are challenging local and global celebrities by asking them to video a message to the kids about the importance of trying their best! If they receive at least 10 celebrity video messages, Phil and Ken will spend a night on the top of the school roofs rain or shine! If you’re a celebrity, here’s how you can help these kids and send their principals to the roofs.

  • Make a video message to the kids in Willington, Conn., about the importance of trying their best. 
  • Share a link to the video in the comments section below.
  • Tweet this to your fellow celebrity friends!

Be that one celebrity to step up and show your love for these wonderful kids!
