Recognizing the Best in Education in Colorado

The Succeeds Prize is a storytelling campaign and cash award that identifies, recognizes, and amplifies the innovations of Colorado’s most forward-thinking educators.

Through The Succeeds Prize, the business community invests in programs that are transforming public education to prepare students from all backgrounds to succeed and collaborates with 9NEWS to share their learnings to inspire and support educators statewide.

Colorado Succeeds believes that education must prepare learners for an everchanging world. Today’s students will enter a workforce of jobs that don’t yet exist, work with tools not yet created, and face problems not yet identified. As business leaders, we are optimistic about this future and want to support the agile educators and systems that create agile learners and whose solutions are prioritizing the needs of students that have been traditionally underserved by our education system.

Our Vision 2030 Framework outlines the education principles, experiences, and transferable competencies students will need to thrive. We seek to invest in and amplify the best examples of educators, schools, districts, partnerships, and programs that embody this Vision and are achieving, or laying the groundwork for, outcomes for students from diverse backgrounds.

The Succeeds Prize is sponsored by the business community in partnership with Colorado Succeeds and 9NEWS.
