AWP Snags Top Honor at 2020 Hermes Creative Awards

A Willing Participant, Inc. (AWP) is proud to announce the receipt of the top honor at the 2020 Hermes Creative Awards.

AWP took home a "Platinum" Hermes award for print design among the early winners in this year's competition for its "Hyper Focus: How to Transform Schools" white paper. The white paper was produced for Accelerate Institute, a Chicago-based nonprofit educational organization.

In addition to the Platinum award, AWP also received two "Gold" awards for other Accelerate Institute projects.

The first Gold award was won for the short-form documentary "2019 Ryan Award Winner Lindsey Robinson." Robinson won the prestigious Ryan Award for her transformational leadership as principal of Chicago International Charter School Avalon on Chicago's South Side.

AWP received its second Gold award for the video "2019 Ryan Award Winner Joán Álvarez." Álvarez, principal of IDEA McAllen College Prep in McAllen, Texas, received the 2019 Ryan Award for closing the achievement gap at his school on the U.S.-Mexico border.

AWP also received a "Silver" award for the project from the MUSE Creative Awards this spring.
