Schools throughout Minnesota have been turning on their stadium lights at night as a way to "honor their students, staff and community members" in the midst of distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a social media post from the Minnesota State High School League, dozens of schools are participating as part of the #BeTheLightMN movement.
