Share your photos for our annual Back-to-School Photo Contest!

 Back-to-School Photo Contest #SJFirstDay19 with four photos of smiling kids and San Juan logo Grab those cameras and strike a pose because San Juan Unified’s annual Back-to-School Photo Contest is back! The top three winners will get to choose prizes from our sponsors: B Street Theatre, Crocker Art Museum, Fairytale Town, Sacramento Kings, Sacramento Republic FC and the Sacramento Zoo.

To participate, simply share a back-to-school photo to either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the #SJFirstDay19 by noon Monday, Aug. 19 (submission deadline).

After the submission deadline, we will collect all entries from each social media platform and create a #SJFirstDay19 photo album on the San Juan Unified School District Facebook page.

The San Juan Unified community will then be allowed to vote by liking their favorite photo in the album. Voting will take place from Monday, Aug.19 (when the album is published) to Friday, Aug. 23 at noon. Only votes/likes from the official Facebook photo album during the allotted time will be counted towards final placements.

The photos with the most likes by noon on Friday, Aug. 23 will be announced as the winners and will be contacted via their social media platform for further instructions.

We look forward to seeing what our students, families and staff have in store for the 2019-20 school year!
