2021 NSPRA Award Winning Video

In July 2021, Topeka Public Schools was honored by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) for its district and school communication efforts in the 2021 National School Communication Awards contest.

TPS received Merit recognition for its “Good Job” music video, a cover of the popular song by Alicia Keys, to celebrate teachers and other school staff for their resilience and dedication during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The video was directed by Dr. Troy Sawyer, who serves as Principal of State Street Elementary Signature Performing Arts School. Dr. Sawyer also starred in the video as lead vocalist. 

Katie Sonderegger, Principal of Quincy Elementary Signature Visual Arts School, served as the video’s art coordinator, and Clayton Schrader, Principal of Ross Elementary Signature Music School, accompanied as the pianist. 

Awards were presented during the 2021 NSPRA National Seminar at the Annual Meeting and Celebration of Achievement.
