Each year, DC's 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 Public Ed Fund has proudly hosted Standing Ovation. Now entering its ninth year, this unique DC tradition continues to play a critical role in elevating the teaching profession and celebrating what's working in urban education.  

We're excited to honor DCPS' top leaders at Standing Ovation 2019 on Thursday, February 7, 2019 at The Anthem.
