On May 6, 2017, Carroll voters approved a $208 million bond program that will provide funding for construction projects at every CISD campus and support facility over the next three to five years. Carroll ISD is looking for talented students who want to star in bond communication videos and newsletters.
The district will be holding auditions for students aged five to sixteen years of age. The ideal candidate would be a student who is well-spoken and articulate, outgoing, friendly, confident, coachable, and focused. These students will be involved in numerous projects over the life of the 2017 Carroll Bond. As with any extracurricular activity, the student’s school studies should come first. This project will require after school video and photo shoots and possible public presentations.
If you are interested in auditioning or having your student audition the process is:
Round 1 – Taped Auditions – Deadline is December 6, 2017
Students may submit a 1-2 minute long video introducing themselves and explaining why they want to be on the Bond Builders Team. Please include a shot at the beginning of the video with the student’s name, campus, grade level and contact information for contact purposes. The video must be submitted to the reception area of the CISD Administration Building by the deadline and must be accompanied by a signed parent permission form. Video submissions can be in .mp4 or .mov format and brought in on a thumb drive. The file will be transferred over to our district computer and the thumb drive will be returned immediately. A panel of judges will view the videos and make a decision on who will advance to the second round of auditions.
Round 2 – Live Audition – December 11-15, 2017
Round 1 finalists will be notified by December 8, 2017, and asked back for a live audition. At this time, the finalists will be provided with a script for the live audition. This monologue will be performed on camera during a scheduled live audition before a panel of CISD staff judges. Once the auditions wrap up, the judges will work together to name the final members of the Bond Builders Team. The students will be contacted once that decision has been made.
Students who are not selected for the Bond Builders Program will go into a pool of students for other potential video projects the district will be producing.
