South Carolina ASCD sponsors this award program in support of ASCD Worldwide and The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Initiative. This program seeks to identify schools in South Carolina that have created a school culture with programs that exemplify the five tenets of this Initiative: Healthy, Safe, Supported, Challenged, or Engaged.


Schools applying for the awards will be required to submit a completed application, along with supporting evidence to SCASCD, according to program guidelines and timelines.  All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee to determine the finalists.  The finalists will be notified in January.  In February, each of the finalists will receive a site visit from members of SCASCD’s Whole Child Award School Selection Committee.  After SCASCD’s annual Spring Conference, the finalists will be notified of the winning school.  The winning school will receive recognition, three complimentary registrations for the South Carolina ASCD Fall Conference, and a $2,500 grant, given for the purpose of implementing other goals related to the tenets of The Whole Child Initiative.
