The best way to encourage educational excellence is to identify it, reward it, and disseminate the practices that lead to it. That's why each year Intel and Scholastic honor these outstanding schools for their dedication to provide quality education to meet the needs of their students.
These sixteen schools were honored at a black tie event in Washington, D.C. on October 5, 2006. Each school received a grant for $10,000 and a chance to be named the "Best of the Best" receiving an additional $15,000 grant.
