With more than 900 participants, approximately 340 messages to 120 members of Congress, and nearly 2,400 tweets and retweets, the 2017 #Thankful4Pell campaign was NCAN’s biggest yet. Never in four years of this annual advocacy effort have we seen such impassioned and consistent engagement from members and partners eager to express their appreciation of Pell Grants to the elected officials who make crucial funding decisions about the federal aid program. 

Below is a collection of standout tweets using the #Thankful4Pell hashtag during Nov. 13-19, 2017.

Thank you to everyone who participated for speaking out for low-income students and making this year’s campaign such a success!
