LEA wants to celebrate teachers and students in Lutheran schools in a video montage shown during the 2019 convocation and in post-convocation promotionals. We invite you to participate in the celebration—even if you’re not able to attend the convocation. Here’s what makes for what we consider ideal photos:

  • Take several photos of teachers interacting with children—relational. Colorful close-up would be good!
  • Avoid photos of your building and posed group shots.
  • Photos should be hi res JPG (at least 1900x1080).
  • Submission of photos includes permission to use those photos as described above.
  • Upload your photos to https://www.dropbox.com/request/SKlTrVc0lN9wGFagCo5O.
  • If you want your school identified, please find a creative way to do it within the photo specifications above. Avoid static shots of your school’s sign.
  • Photos will be accepted through the end of May.
