Paola Sosa is a CTE educator at Earl Warren High School in San Antonio, TX. She sponsors the WHS Animation Club, which is a newly founded team made up of high school students from all types of backgrounds. The team works together to create short, animated films for competitions and scholarships. In their first year, the team was accepted to SXSW Texas High School Film Contest and made it to state finals in the UIL Young Filmmakers Contest. With very few resources and funding, Paola's team was able to accomplish so much in so little time. They hope to expand their team and opportunities with this grant.
NSHSS is always looking to find ways to support our network of educators, especially those who are constantly looking to support their students. To help offset the financial burden, NSHSS is awarding fifteen (15) high school educators $500 grants to help provide additional opportunities to their students and classrooms.
