The FOX29 and CW Making the Grade is open to STUDENTS in Calcasieu Parish in grades 1st to 8th. Teachers must submit only ONE elementary student and ONE middle school student per month per school. Students must be nominated by their teachers only. The standards used in determining the Making the Grade will be based on overall exemplary behavior, academic standing, and community involvement. We will afford equal opportunity in the selection process without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or sex. Teachers will be notified if the nominated student is selected. Selected students will be honored in a television campaign and featured on FOX29 & Friends and on a FOX29 CW commercial. Students will receive a DVD with their commercial, a certificate of merit, and a gift pack compliments of FOX29/CW, First Federal Bank and McDonald’s.
