the broad prize for urban education

The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation announced today the four finalists for the 2013 Broad Prize for Urban Education, a $1 million award given annually to the four urban school districts in America that have made the greatest improvement in student achievement, particularly among low-income and minority students.

This year’s four finalists are:
• Corona-Norco Unified School District in Riverside County, Calif.
• Cumberland County Schools, N.C.
• Houston Independent School District
• San Diego Unified School District

The Broad (rhymes with “road”) Prize for Urban Education is an annual $1 million award—the largest education prize in the country—that honors urban school districts that demonstrate the greatest overall performance and improvement in student achievement while reducing achievement gaps among poor and minority students.

The winner of the 2013 Broad Prize will be announced on Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Washington, D.C. at the Library of Congress. The winning district will receive $550,000 in scholarships for its students, and the three finalist districts will each receive $150,000 in college scholarships for graduating high school seniors, for a total distribution of $1 million.News Release – Broad Prize Finalists
