In May 2023, Greenville County Schools will host the annual ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education). The ACE Awards recognize “Unsung Hero” students within the district. These students have overcome obstacles to exhibit strong character and educational achievement.

ACE Awards are given to two 8th grade and 12th grade students from each middle and high school. The 2023 ACE Awards winners will be celebrated during an exciting evening program honoring their outstanding character, community service, and academic efforts.

GCS is now accepting ACE Awards sponsorships. Sponsors will receive tickets to the evening event and an invitation to a donor reception with our high-profile keynote speaker and members of the district leadership team.
