The Northwest Arkansas School Choice Festival was an enormous success! Thank you to all of you who joined us on January 14 to celebrate school choice and learn more about education in Northwest Arkansas.
Over 30 schools participated, interacting with hundreds of families and building relationships with other educators.
The event was the first of its kind in Arkansas and was featured out of more than 21,000 events nationwide as a National School Choice Week spotlight event.
The festival featured entertainment, foam dart archery, free swimming, scholarship information, door prizes, and college and financial aid presentation in both English and Spanish. During the festival, Representative Jim Dotson announced his new bill, HB1022, to families for the first time.
Over 800 community members gathered at The Jones Center to learn about educational options for the 2017-2018 school year. The date for the 2018 NWA School Choice Festival will be announced soon. Please sign up for our newsletter to stay informed about all upcoming NWA School Choice events!
