On Friday night, an idea from the collective brain of the Iowa High School Athletic Directors Association turned into a magical movement in Iowa.
The IHSADA asked schools on Twitter to turn on their stadium lights at 8:00 p.m. every Friday night, for as many minutes as school days missed up to that point.
The first Friday, lights were on for 15 minutes across the state as a show of solidarity for all students. The Twitter campaign uses the hashtag #LightUpIA.
