power of recognition documentary 

Coming Spring 2019

Check out the documentary teaser!

The simple act of recognition brought the Louisville educational community together: teaching students the value of recognition, taking time to reflect, the strength recognition can give others, and so much more!

Through the distribution of donated OGO J.A.R.s (which stands for O Great One, Jackpot of Acknowledgement and Recognition, an educational tool created by former Yum! Brands CEO, David Novak), a city-wide service project empowered student to recognize the efforts of school staff who strive to make a difference in their lives every day. The project was facilitated in 180 Public, Private and Independent schools across Louisville/JeffersonCounty, where over 115,000 students from Kindergarten through 12th grade recognized 6,500 educational staff.

Documenting the city-wide effort, “The Power of Recognition,” follows the implementation from start to finish seeing 3 tractor-trailers rolling up with the donated OGO J.A.R.s all the way to the heart-felt moments when the school staff received them from the students. In particular, the story dives deep into the uniting power recognizing others had on both Rangeland Elementary School and duPont Manual High School.

We want to ask the simple and powerful question “Who would you recognize?”
