National School Choice Week provides a perfect opportunity for local chambers of commerce and business organizations to raise awareness of the different K-12 education options for families in their communities.
Chambers of commerce can sign up for a free box of NSCW supplies, including NSCW’s signature yellow fleece scarves. Use these materials at any meeting, event or activity of your choice in January. Some chambers choose to mention school choice at an already-planned breakfast event or luncheon, while others use NSCW as an opportunity to recognize successful local schools, students, and teachers. How you celebrate is completely up to you!
If you are planning an event that is open to the public and will include more than 100 attendees, consider applying to receive even more free supplies and event promotion assistance as part of our Spotlight Program. Click here to apply and to learn more.
