The Ken Spencer Award

Does your innovative classroom/school program deserve some recognition?

Our network wants to amplify more of these ‘hidden gems’ currently being delivered in schools across the country, which are producing some of the most creative and innovative pedagogical approaches for lighting a learning spark in previously disengaged youth. We want to shine a spotlight on your courage and perseverance to do things differently and share your approach with our national network.
