Activity Ideas for Organizations

Whether you represent an education organization, a local nonprofit, a local chamber of commerce, a fraternal group, or a public policy think tank, National School Choice Week provides you with a unique and impactful opportunity to shine a spotlight on your support for opportunity in education. We invite you to use NSCW as a platform to showcase your work through local op-eds, media interviews, and social media campaigns. However you choose to participate, make sure that it meets your goals, and have fun!

Note: We request that participants plan activities and projects to celebrate National School Choice Week 2021, not in-person events. Together, we can all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. Read more.
