The Corporation’s Schools of Distinction Awards honor U.S. K-12 schools that demonstrate excellence in math and science education through innovative teaching and learning curriculums. To be considered as an Intel School of Distinction, schools must develop an environment and curricula that meet or exceed benchmarks put forth by national mathematics and science content standards. Up to three schools at each level, elementary, middle, and high school, will be named as finalists in the math and science categories. These 18 schools will receive a cash grant of $5,000 from the Foundation and a trip to Washington, D.C., for a four-member team from their school and district. Six winners will be selected from the finalists and receive a $10,000 cash grant. One of these six will be selected as the “Star Innovator” and will receive $25,000. The program is open to K-12 public, private, charter, and parochial schools in the United States, Department of Defense Dependents schools, and Bureau of Indian Affairs schools.
