Share Your Story

The National Blue Ribbon School program invites awardees to share their stories and celebrations using the internet and social media!

Hone Your Message

Questions for awardees to consider:

  • What is the one practice others can learn from your school?
  • How did your school overcome challenges faced on the way to becoming a National Blue Ribbon School?
  • How has the National Blue Ribbon Schools award impacted your school?
  • What has your school achieved since receiving the National Blue Ribbon Schools award?

Choose Your Medium

Which method best fits the message?

  • A text driven story posted to school or district website.
  • A brief written anecdote posted to school Facebook page.
  • A video posted to school Facebook or Twitter account.
  • An illustrative photo and accompanying description published on Facebook or Twitter.
  • A name badge for your website:
    • Go to the award winners page, locate your school, and click to view your school profile.
    • From your profile page, click the link at the top titled “NBRS Badge for your Web site”.
    • The system will generate embed code your web team can place on your web site.
