The Road Map Project held an awards ceremony fall 2013 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 ceremony aimed to encourage the adoption and spread of successful efforts across the region. All nominated efforts had to demonstrate how the work helps to advance equity and close the opportunity gap.
There were 21 finalists, which were selected from a pool of more than 60 nominations. This diverse group of finalists included partnerships, programs, and initiatives that are getting excellent results, using data well for improvement purposes and collaborating to get more powerful results for students. A panel of 15 judges, comprised of local and national experts, assisted in determining recipients for two Collective Impact Awards for overall excellence and seven Special Recognition Awards.
