What is Westerville Education Challenge?
Westerville Education Challenge (WEC) was established in 2009 by a group of parents and community members who sought to raise private support for public education in Westerville City Schools.
The initial desire was to provide funding and a long term financial solution for a program called Challenge Day. Challenge Day is an anti-bullying program that teaches students and community mentors about diversity and acceptance. Challenge Day is offered to all Westerville high school students at each of our three schools.
Westerville Education Challenge continues to evolve and now offers grants that directly enhance educational opportunities for a significant number of students and teachers in the Westerville City Schools.
WEC has achieved
Westerville Education Challenge has donated over $70,000 to Westerville City Schools to support Challenge Day, grants for educators, and our newest partnership with our middle schools.
Celebrate a decade of Challenge Day with us! Over the past TEN years, Challenge Day has touched the hearts and lives of nearly 5,000 Westerville students and become an annual tradition in all 3 high schools. To celebrate, we are going to plant 5,000 daffodils and beautify our high school campuses on Friday, October 20. Adults with a green thumb are needed to team up with our students and plant these bulbs. To sign up for the Daffodil Project, please use this link: Daffodil Project Adult Signup
