Redefining Ready! Initiative

  Redefining Ready! National Scholarship 2018 Contest 

 The Redefining Ready! National Scholarship 2018 lets America’s graduating high school seniors tell the world how they are college, career, and life ready beyond a single test score. Examples include completion of an internship, AP or dual credit classes while in high school, near-perfect attendance, or participation in clubs, sports, and school activities.

The story must be told via a 30 sec video posted on YouTube and shared on Twitter by using the hashtag #RedefiningReady and tagging @AASAHQ and @Hobsons.

        Redefining Ready! Cohort    

Redefining Ready! is a national initiative launched by AASA, The School Superintendents Association, to introduce new research-based metrics to more appropriately assess that students are college ready, career ready and life ready.  The initiative is a response to dismal college and career readiness scores reported by standardized test makers that fail to portray a comprehensive picture of student potential. Learn more about the new college and career readiness indicators and join our national campaign to help school districts and systems across the nation continue  Redefining Ready!
