Entries in the first-ever IHSA Holiday TikTok Challenge presented by Double Good have poured in from around the state, as high school teams from Chicago to Vienna and over 100 other communities in between submitted holiday themed videos.
With nearly 150 total video entries to review, the IHSA office is currently buzzing like the North Pole as we try to narrow down these amazing videos to determine who will make the cut. The top videos will be revealed on December 10, at which point online voting will be opened to determine the winner of $500 from Double Good to be split between the team and a charity of their choice.
All of the videos we received in the contest belong on the nice list, but a few were twice as nice (or Double Good), and although they didn’t make the cut for the top prize, we felt that they deserved special recognition on Santa’s list.
