Each fall, EdVestors celebrates three of Boston’s most improving schools and recognizes the winner of the $100,000 School on the Move Prize, shining a light on schools, leaders, and teachers who significantly improve student outcomes and continuously work to create a learning environment where all students thrive.

The 16th Annual School on the Move Prize Ceremony will take place on the morning of Wednesday, October 27th in front of Boston’s business, education, civic, and philanthropic leaders.  Like many aspects of our lives over the past year, the 2021 Prize will be different in a few ways. We’ll be spotlighting eligible schools from previous years, with a special focus on lessons learned from remote and hybrid learning and strategies for reimagining learning in the coming years. The hybrid event will be hosted at GBH Studios in Brighton on Wednesday, October 27th from 8-10am.

We would welcome your presence at the event if that is feasible. Based on the guidelines from GBH, guests will need to wear a mask, be vaccinated and socially distanced. Please indicate in the registration form if you plan to attend in person. Seats are on a first come and first serve basis.

Online access details will be sent to registrants closer to the event.

In-person capacity to be determined in the coming weeks according to public health guidelines.
