Year 3 of The Succeeds Prize came and went, and now we are gearing up for the 2020 ceremony. We brought together leaders from Colorado’s business, education, and government sector to celebrate our public schools and educators as the heroes they are. $150,000 was awarded to top-performing public schools and educators across the state in six categories.
