All students, please note that this is not a school sponsored event, but rather just a senior social.  The address is 655 N. East End Rd. Strawberry Plains, TN 37871.   If you are planning on going, please fill out the google doc below.

·      Film Festival Call for Entries:  Entries are now open for the first annual L&N STEM Academy Film Festival! We are accepting entries for all films made by STEM Academy students from ANY year that you were enrolled here (graduates included). The film or films that you choose to submit can be anything ranging from a journalism piece to a short film to a documentary and more. If your film is outside the scope of the categories listed on the submission form, please list it under the “other” category.  

You may submit any amount of films that you choose. Your submissions will then be juried by a panel of judges made up of your peers and teachers. If selected to show at the festival, your film will automatically be nominated for our selection of awards that will be announced during the festival. The due date for entries is May 5th. The festival will be held on May 18th in the commons immediately following the spring play on the plaza (7 PM).  Submission Link:

Community  & Guidance Ops:
