Awards

$150,000 in Cash Prizes

The Succeeds Prize rewards what's working in Colorado's public schools
to deepen impact and support ongoing innovation.

Teachers are our champions of innovation, creativity, and learning. They are the most important partner in building a more responsive and agile education system. The Succeeds Prize recognizes innovation in alignment to Vision 2030 in two categories – Transformational Impact and Excellence in Education. We have identified finalists and semi-finalists for each. Now it’s time to save the date, share with friends, and prepare for the premier celebration in education, supported by Colorado’s business leaders.
