Collect Evidence to Apply for Gold in 2024

Achieving STLP Gold Status is a challenging, but rewarding, optional activity that should involve your whole STLP.

Schools that embrace STLP throughout the year, and are prepared to detail the value of their STLP, should consider applying to ACHIEVE Gold Status. STLP schools that currently have active Gold Status (see 2023-2024 list below) should apply to RETAIN their Gold Status for the upcoming year.

Gold Status applications can be built throughout the STLP year, but the application window will not open until the end of the school year to allow your STLP to participate and collect evidence to support your application. Build your application all year to highlight your STLP accomplishments.

All Gold Status applications should be student developed.
