What is the Brock Prize in Education Innovation?
The Brock Prize in Education Innovation is built upon the belief that the most important thing we do in life is to educate the next generation. Our mission is to reward IDEAS PROVEN TO ENHANCE EDUCATION. We value ideas with GLOBAL IMPACT, UNIVERSAL ACCESSIBILITY, and A PROVEN TRACK RECORD. We want to change the world. We want to enhance peace and prosperity. Education is an instrumental means to bring change.
The prize itself is awarded each year at a public ceremony during the Brock Prize Symposium and consists of $40,000, a vellum certificate, and a bust of Sequoyah. The prize rewards an idea, not a person.
The 2020 Brock Prize Symposium with featured speaker, laureate Dr. Tarajean Yazzie-Mintz (Diné), postponed until fall 2020.
