Rolling out the Blue Carpet: Schools Highlight Their Success

Hosting dignitaries, creating essay contests, holding public celebrations, and more, National Blue Ribbon Schools showcase their successes  with energy and creativity.

How has your school publicized this national recognition? Please let us know through “Share Your Story.” And do send pictures.

Here are a few ideas culled from previous National Blue Ribbon Schools:

  • We had a community open house and received media coverage 
  • Our school board held its meeting at our school on the official announcement day and held a reception for faculty and staff.
  • The State Superintendent and First Lady of our state attended our awesome student assembly. 
  • The mayor read a proclamation at town meeting. 
  • We hung a Blue Ribbon banner across the train station. 
  • We planted blue flowers around the school
  • We created a video on “what makes our school great” with student and teacher comments.
