The basic 2018 timeline is outlined below:
- January-February: Award program applications and rules will be posted on the website. Applicants will go to the AOI website to request an application.
- March-June: A panel of judges will review the applications and select the winners.
- July: Awards will be ordered and press releases will be written; Winners have been announced!
- August-December: Winning strategies will be written up as white papers.
- January, 2019: Winning strategy white papers will be made available to the foster care community through membership with AOI. (If we are able to get the strategy papers written sooner than expected, we can make them available before January.)
