THANK YOU to everyone who submitted a nomination to the Road Map Project Awards Program! The nomination period has ended. Check back soon for more information, and please put the awards ceremony on your calendar: March 4, 2014, at the Museum of Flight.
For program details, please review the official nomination guide:
The Road Map Project is launching its first-ever Awards Program to shine a light on great efforts in South King County and South Seattle that are advancing equity and closing opportunity gaps from cradle to college and career. By elevating this work, the program aims to encourage the adoption and spread of successful efforts across the region. All nominated efforts must demonstrate how the work helps to advance equity and close the opportunity gap.
The Road Map Project takes a collaborative approach to increasing student achievement in the region. Similarly, the Awards Program’s collaborative focus makes it very different than most other award programs.Instead of honoring one individual or one organization for the work they are doing, this Awards Program will recognize and honor the great work being done through collaboration. Simply put, the result of collaborations will be honored as opposed to the efforts of just one entity or one person acting alone.
There are five criteria for eligibility that must be met in order for a nominated effort to move forward in the nomination process. An effort that is nominated but does not meet the eligibility threshold outlined below will not be considered by the judges. An explanation of each criterion is included in the official nomination guide.
