Annual Awards Celebration

Each spring, we celebrate the achievements of five of our most outstanding Beat the Odds® honorees.  This event recognizes and commemorates the strength, resilience, and determination that our honorees demonstrate both inside and outside of the classroom.  The event also helps to raise awareness about the challenges facing Ohio children and the need for continued advocacy and investment. 

Join Marian Wright Edelman and Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio for the 5th Annual Beat the Odds Awards Celebration.
