Due to the impact of Covid-19, United 4 Children’s inaugural School’s Out Award Ceremony is postponed.

The team at U4C has been monitoring Covid-19 with great sincerity.  We understand that the virus will continue to have an incredible impact on the community, and we take our responsibility seriously to mitigate its spread where we can.  In the wake of this crisis, we will be postponing and renaming our inaugural award ceremony. Now, our inaugural School’s Back Award Ceremony will be Friday, August 7 from 11:00 a.m-1:00 p.m. at the iconic Moulin Event Center in St. Louis. Postponing this event is in direct alignment with our core values: community, trust, equity, and empathy.

This event brings funders, peer organizations, community partners and clients together for a celebration you will not forget. Not only is this a unique event that brings voices and recognition together, it is an opportunity for radical collaboration. We are excited to honor key contributors and stakeholders in advancing early childhood education in the region. This year, we will be presenting awards to a community partner, a client and a funder.
