The 2023 West Contra Costa Education Fair is set for Saturday, January 28 with fair organizers excited to bring the event back to an in-person format.
Sponsored by the West Contra Costa Unified School District and EnrollWCC, the Education Fair aims to champion the power of education by providing families with information and support to meet the academic and enrichment needs of their students.
Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with representatives from K-12 schools throughout West Contra Costa, as well as college admissions counselors. Staff from local community organizations will also be in attendance to share more about their family and youth program offerings. This year’s Education Fair will also feature a community book swap where families can both donate gently used books their children have outgrown and bring home new titles to refresh their home libraries.
For the second year in a row, the Education Fair will honor the hard work of school support staff through the West Contra Costa School Champion Awards. Nominees will be recognized at the in-person Education Fair during an awards ceremony, starting at 10:30 a.m on January 28. To nominate a School Champion, click here.
