Let the voting begin: Step Up nominated for best Tampa Bay area nonprofit

By LISA A. DAVIS

Step Up For Students is excited to announce that we’ve been nominated as ‘Best Local NonProfit’ in the Tampa Bay area in Creative Loafing’s annual Best of the Bay contest.

With an office in St. Petersburg and another in Jacksonville, Step Up For Students has served more than 80,000 students throughout the state during the 2015-16 school year with its two scholarship programs. We expect the number to rise for the 2016-17 school year. botb2016
