CBHS students win Twitter contest as Top Student Section in country

The Christian Brothers High School Student Section was victorious as the top student section in the country in a Twitter contest, sponsored by TOP Student Section @SectionGoals. The announcement was made January 25 via Twitter polling.

With 22 thousand followers, TOP Student Section contacted assistant basketball coach Brad Luckett who provided a still shot of our crowd and Webster Cannon, moderator of the Brothers Leadership Council, who provided a 12-second video of CBHS students “in action.”

Announcement of the contest was made Dec 22. “There will be a POLL contest to have a NEW Student Section as our 2017 header! Tweet me school(s) & I'll start the rounds tomorrow! To be entered, the Student Section must: • have a student section account • have a decent student body (50+) How the contest goes: • 4 student sections in EACH poll / 8 polls (32 schools) • remaining 2 each round move on • 4 days to vote each round .”

After that, the voting, via Twitter, began with the question “Who has the BEST Student Section in 2016? DM us your school name and location with pictures as well! Follow us to be on sooner!”
