The Path to Recognition

In order to celebrate students and educators for their dedication and academic success throughout the year, HMH uses data from each quarter of the school year to identify 180 Award winners. Criteria includes:

Demonstrated growth gains in assessment scores
Minutes in the program
Number of minimum sessions

We also encourage districts to celebrate their teachers and students by using #180Awards in social media. HMH is eager to hear and celebrate their individual stories.

Each quarter we celebrate these winners with certificates, social badges and an end of year virtual celebration.
