There is no registration fee for the ceremony, but the costs of travel and lodging are the school’s responsibility. For your planning purposes, we are holding a block of rooms at the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center in National Harbor, MD at a reduced conference rate of $181 per night plus estimated government taxes and fees. This rate is valid for attendees to the National Blue Ribbon Schools awards ceremony. Our room block will be available in September following the official announcement. Please do not contact the hotel at this time to make room reservations. You will not receive the discounted rate until September.
