The Showcase for Creative Excellence (SCE) allows students to experience the creative process as they explore 21st Century skills through the development of a digital product. These skills include the ability to inquire, think critically, gain knowledge, draw conclusions, make connections, apply knowledge to new situations, create new knowledge, share and participate ethically in our democratic society, and pursue personal growth.
Richland One's SCE is a recognition program that showcases a collection of individual categories of digital work designed to acknowledge the work done by students in Richland County School District One. The work presented is not produced specifically for these contests, but rather is material prepared for standards-based class projects during the school year. SCE will provide students the opportunity to publish their work for a global audience.
The contests are open to all students of Richland County School District One. Students are encouraged to submit their work prior to the showcase deadline for feedback. All prior submitted projects will be posted on the SCE website and will be published for feedback. Students can take the feedback and use it to finalize the project before the final showcase deadline. All entries are due by the date and time set by the school.
The entry must be accompanied by the appropriate application (see categories). All applications must be sponsored by a certified staff member and include a description of the standards that were assessed as a part of the project. Each entry will receive a certificate, and the top two entries will advance to the District Level Showcase. The top two entries will receive a badge/ribbon stating they won the School Level program. Badges/ribbons and a certificate template will be provided by the District’s Library Media Consultant. All entries to the District Level Showcase must submit a two to three sentence summary of their project.
The District Level Showcase will consist of the top two entries from each school for each category. Entries will be posted on the Office of Learning Environments and Instructional Resources (LEIR) website by category. All judging will be submitted online using the Program Evaluation Form. The top entry from each category will receive a badge/ribbon and a trophy. Each entry will receive a certificate. Certificates and ribbons/trophies will be provided by the District’s Library Media Consultant. Winners will be notified through a "Prize Patrol" visit by members of the District Planning Team and Central Administration. All winners will be showcased on the Office of Learning Environments and Instructional Resources (LEIR) website and ROTV.
