1 EXHIBITOR APPLICATION GUIDE Introduction & Purpose The Road Map Project and the region s Race to the Top project are co-hosting a Celebration of Success event to showcase successful efforts which are advancing equity and closing opportunity gaps from cradle to college and career in South King County and Seattle. Our goals are to Encourage the spread of success, including the successful work undertaken with the support from the seven district Race to the Top grant. Respond to the call from our communities to create an opportunity for access to funders and decision-makers. Create a forum to promote excellent efforts and initiatives through effective use of a variety of media and communication methods. The event will take place on Thursday, June 9, 2016, from 6:00pm 8:30pm at the Museum of Flight. Approximately 425 attendees will gather in the Great Gallery. Audience The Celebration of Success is a unique opportunity both for those who have gap-closing successes to share, and for people and organizations interested in learning and spreading these efforts. Invitees include private and public funders; media; district and community partners who have led Race to the Top programs; superintendents, school board members and union presidents from the Road Map Project districts; state, local and federal elected officials; higher education leaders; business leaders; community organizations and advocates; and parent leaders and student advocates. Showcasing Success Closing Racial Equity Gaps We are dedicated to honoring and celebrating the efforts of people in our region who consistently show their steadfast commitment to improving educational outcomes for students despite the obstacles often encountered. Efforts aligned with the Road Map Project goals, including Race to the Top funded efforts, are invited to apply to showcase their successful work.

2 Space is limited, but we anticipate being able to support approximately 30 Exhibitors in showcasing their work at the Celebration of Success.

4 APPENDIX 1 ROAD MAP PROJECT INDICATORS OF STUDENT SUCCESS The Road Map Project Indicators of Student Success are ways to measure important elements of educational success. They are not an exclusive list of the ways our children are successful in their life or in school, but were chosen because they represent key milestones in educational attainment from cradle through career and can be measured over time using accessible data. The indicators were developed in 2010 with extensive community input and are based on available research whenever possible. Learn more about the indicators, project targets, and how they are used the Road Map Project s Measuring Success website.
