Awards to USA and US Virgin Islands school districts for programs that showcase exemplary school district leadership, creativity, and commitment to student achievement. Priority will be given to school districts that help underserved children succeed. Nominations are judged according to three enrollment categories (under 5,000 enrollment; 5,000-20,000 enrollment; and over 20,000 enrollment) with one Grand Prize Winner in each category.

For the 2021 awards, the judges will look for programs that:

  • Remove barriers to achievement for vulnerable or underserved children, based on race, ethnicity, gender, special needs, geography, or socioeconomic status.
  • Support their school board’s equity mission and vision for the district
  • Exhibit success over time
  • Has longevity and sustainability
  • Can be replicated by other school districts with similar conditions and resources.
