Virtual Award Celebrating successful public education initiatives in South Carolina

Registration here!

The Dick and Tunky Riley WhatWorksSC Award and Clearinghouse is dedicated to celebrating remarkable education programs that are making a difference for children and communities. Each fall, the Riley Institute presents the Dick and Tunky Riley WhatWorksSC Award to a program that has collected detailed data demonstrating its impact on South Carolina’s public school students.

The Riley Institute is pleased to announce its three WhatWorksSC finalists: The Alternative Pathways to Educator Certification (APEC) Program, Monaview MAGIC Initiative, and Spartanburg First Steps/Quality Counts.

The WhatWorksSC Award ceremony is one of the biggest celebrations of public education in the state and will take place virtually this year on October 6. The winner will be announced by former U.S. Secretary of Education and S.C. Governor Richard W. Riley.
