ALERT: THIS SPECIAL STLP EVENT HAS A NEW DEADLINE: March 16th, 2018
In recognition of 2017-2018 being the 100th Anniversary of Kentucky High School Basketball, this documentary video category should tell a unique, compelling, exciting or timeless story about high school basketball which is a key part of Kentucky’s culture and dynamic. A high quality, creative and unique production are elements of this category which must feature an historical or fascinating story about a storied gymnasium or lost school (one that no longer exists). The documentary should be visually compelling and have interviews. The product can include video footage, some still shots, newspaper clippings and other media.
The product must be no longer than 8 minutes in length. The best products from the 16 basketball regions will be invited to the STLP State Championship as finalists and the team members will come up on stage and receive scholarship money. Judges will be video professionals and members of the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame Committee.
Submit your video as part of a special registration process (deadline March 16th). Judging will occur prior to the STLP State Championship. At the STLP State Championship, just like at the state basketball tournament, the top four teams will be recognized and awarded additional monetary scholarships with the Centennial State Champion and Runner-Up also receiving trophies.
In the summer of 2018, during the Centennial Basketball Celebration in Elizabethtown, KY, the location of the KHSBHF Museum, the finalists will be recognized at the Historic State Theater and the winners will have a grand premiere on the big screen.
- Sweet 16: the top 16 finalists will receive $500 from KHSBHF
- 1 Champion from the Sweet 16 winners will win the Grand Sweet 16 championship and an additional $1500
