Brought to you by The Webby Awards, The Anthem Awards honors the purpose & mission-driven work of people, companies, and organizations worldwide. By amplifying the voices that spark global change, we’re defining a new benchmark for impactful work that inspires others to take action in their own communities.

Real Options for City Kids (R.O.C.K.) is fortunate to have received the silver medal award in the category of Education, Art, & Culture – Research Projects/Publications – Awareness Categories (Not-For-Profit) for their Returning Stronger research report.

R.O.C.K. partnered with Wicoff Consulting LLC to design and lead a study assessing the range of challenges and needs students and families may face upon reintegrating to in-person learning after the COVID-19 pandemic. The resulting report, Returning Stronger, presents findings and themes from the study, which included field research, surveys, focus groups, and interviews with 7 district and city leaders, 48 school staff, 24 nonprofit staff, 33 families, and 20 students.
