This year’s honorees will be announced on Friday, March 25, 2022.  Awards will be delivered soon after the winners are announced, when nominators of the winners will be notified.

“The Florida Charter School Champions of the Year Awards recognize exceptional individuals and companies who represent the very best aspects of the charter school movement,” said FCPCS President Robert Haag.  “The awards program is a celebration of their achievements and success.”
