Schools and districts need to prepare students for their future while also balancing their bottom line.

When students have a plan, they are more likely to execute on it and align their postsecondary path with their life goals.
We are excited to once again announce that the nominations process for our annual Education Advances Awards is open to schools and districts across the nation and world. We have a stellar panel of judges this year, all who are eager to review the innovative work that is taking place in college and career readiness. Our judges have been active in the field of education and college and career readiness and are dedicated to student success. We would like to thank them for their dedication in helping to recognize those who are putting students at the center of the conversation and helping them to succeed in elementary, middle, high school, and beyond.
