STAR Awards Walk of Stars

STAR Awards

For 44 PandoKids, May 4th will be a day to remember. The 28th annual STAR awards will take place at the Crown Uptown Theatre from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM. Students will experience a once-in-a-lifetime awards ceremony with family, friends, school staff, and Pando supporters where they are the star of the show, letting their achievements shine.

At The Pando Initiative, we’re helping students thrive! When students are connected through relationships they build strength, vitality, and the courage to take initiative to succeed. We measure success by improving attendance, behavior, and academic performance. The STAR awards aim to acknowledge and honor those Pando students who have shown exceptional growth in the 2022-23 school year. Students are nominated by Student Support Advocates for various reasons; improved grades, increased school attendance, participation, even personal growth.

You can be a part of this experience by becoming a sponsor or attending the event. Several different levels of sponsorship are available. To sponsor, or learn how you can help send two Pando students to the STAR Awards, click here. Tickets go on sale April 1, 2023.
