Each year the League awards committee reviews over 100+ nominees across six main categories to award Hall of Fame status. It is the strength of the entire nominee pool which is impressive and challenging to narrow down to a finalist pool. Again, this year, we are impressed, awed, and honored to announce our finalists for the 2021 awards below. Thank you to all the nominees, all the finalists, nominators, and all the staff, teachers, administrators, leaders, and families who participate and contribute to the success of the 261 charter schools serving over 131,000 charter school students. The awards will be announced at the Member Forum, March 5, 9:45am virtually through Zoom during the annual conference. We congratulate all the 2021 winners!
