Race to the Top High School Commencement Challenge
Sponsored by the US Dept of education and partnering with the White House, the Commencement Challenge invites public high schools across the country to demonstrate how their school best prepares them for college and a career, helping America win the future by out-educating our competitors and achieving President Obama’s goal of having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020.
The application includes essay questions and statistical information that illustrate how schools are promoting college and career readiness for all students while establishing a culture of student success and academic excellence. The winning school will host President Obama as their 2011 commencement speaker.
Deadline to enter is Friday, February 25th at 11:59 pm EST.
