Sweetheart Court Program
Fourteen high school students representing Samuel Clemens, John Paul II, Judson, East Central, and Randolph High Schools applied to be part of the 2020-2021 Schertz Sweetheart Court. Applicants completed a three-week online process in preparation for the three-part competition: Personal Interview, Talent, and TED Talk.
COVID-19 changed the structure of the program from years past but provided the applicants an opportunity to use technology on their own behalf. Talent and TED Talk topics were video recorded and submitted for judges review. Personal interviews were held using an online portal. A panel of three judges from the local area reviewed applications, videos and met the applicants via Zoom Meetings.
Court members will represent the City of Schertz at City events, area parades and celebrations, and participate in community service projects.
