Intel Schools Of Distinction Awards
The Program recognizes U.S. schools that implement innovative, replicable programs that inspire their students and lead to positive educational outcomes in the areas of math and science. The Program is open to K-12 public, private, charter, and parochial schools in the United States, Department of Defense schools, and Bureau of Indian Affairs schools. Schools must develop an environment and curricula that meet or exceed benchmarks, including national mathematics and science content standards. The applicant school’s program must have three years of results data, whether NCES or other comparable data. Eighteen finalists will be selected, three from each of the following grade ranges: K-5, 6-8, and 9-12, in each of the two categories of math and science. Six winners, selected out of the 18 finalists, will receive $10,000 from the Intel Foundation and more than $100,000 worth of products and services from the program award sponsors. One of the final six winners will be identified as the Star Innovator for 2009 and will receive an additional $15,000 from the Foundation as well as additional services and products from the award sponsors. Additional information, including an online application and eligibility criteria, is available on the Web site.
