When a student is enrolled at a school but is not required to be physically present to complete their education, we refer to that school as a Distance Learning Program. Examples of Distance Learning Programs include virtual or online schools and home school networks.
Participation in the Awards begins at the regional level with recognition in your local community. Students are automatically assigned to a region based on the location of their primary school. If your school is a Distance Learning Program, then you will be assigned to a region based on your home address in your profile.
Other Educational Programs (OEP) and residence programs like boarding schools are not marked as Distance Learning Programs.
If you believe that you have been assigned to the wrong region, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
