SPRINGDALE -- Organizers of the 2018 Northwest Arkansas School Choice Festival are looking to build on last year's inaugural event and provide more information about local educational options.

Event

What: Northwest Arkansas School Choice Festival

When: 9 a.m.-noon, Jan. 20

Where: The Jones Center, 922 E. Emma Ave., Springdale

Why: National School Choice Week is Jan. 21-27, 2018. It’s held each year in January because if parents start searching for schools in January, they should have enough time to enroll their children for the next school year, according to schoolchoiceweek.com.
