The latest iteration of Florida College Decision Day was marked by pep rallies, pennants, prize patrols, and much more.
This year, 99 Florida high schools participated in Florida College Decision Day, the state’s adoption of Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Better Make Room campaign, which was launched in 2015 and recognizes all students for their postsecondary plans the same way athletes and other high-profile, college-bound students are celebrated.
The campaign typically takes place on and around May 1, but several schools in the state got a head start on the festivities in mid-to-late April. To share some of the sights, sounds, and social media buzz generated at this year’s Decision Day events, we’ve created a Storify that captures many of this year’s highlights.
And since it’s never too early to start thinking about next school year, be sure to register your school to participate in Florida College Application Week, the Florida FAFSA Challenge, and Florida College Decision Day during the 2017-18 school year. Florida CAN provides training, technical assistance, tools, resources, and other materials to participating schools.
