The Brock Family Community Foundation's sole purpose is the awarding of the Brock International Prize in Education and the establishment of the Brock Prize Symposium. The directors of the Foundation are Dr. Ed Harris, R. Blake Atkins, attorney; and Thomas W. Wilkins, President of the Trust Company of Oklahoma. The Trust Company of Oklahoma manages the Foundation’s funds.
Brock Family Community Foundation funds the administrative costs of the prize as well as travel expenses for jury members and the laureate.
Each year, a jury of nine members selected by the chair of the Executive Committee deliberates to select the recipient of the Brock International Prize in Education. Jurors include educators and champions of education, university officers, meritorious professors, business and government officials, and others committed to excellence in education.
Each juror nominates one candidate, submits a brief statement on the accomplishments of that individual, and develops a 20 to 50-page portfolio showcasing the nominee's work. During the deliberation process, each juror makes a 30-minute oral presentation in support of his or her candidate. Discussion and elimination voting follow until the Brock Laureate for the following year is identified.
