Deadline: February 17, 2011

Applications Open for Intel Schools of Distinction Awards

Every year, Intel honors K-12 schools in the U.S. that demonstrate excellence in math and science education through innovative teaching and learning environments. 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 eighteen schools will receive a cash grant of $5,000 from the Intel 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 winners will be selected as the "Star Innovator" and will receive a $25,000 grant. All five winning schools and the Star Innovator will also receive products and services from program sponsors.

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. Eligibility is limited to accredited schools that are publicly funded and/or not-for-profit.
