Washington, DC is home to an educator recognition event unlike any other.
Each year, business leaders, philanthropic champions, education partners, and civic leaders come together for Standing Ovation for DC Public Schools. This star-studded awards ceremony and celebration honors the achievements of DCPS' top teachers, leaders, and school communities with cash prizes totaling $230,000.
Since 2010, DC Ed Fund has proudly hosted Standing Ovation. Now entering its eighth year, this unique DC tradition continues to play a critical role in elevating the teaching profession and celebrating what's working in urban education.
