Award of $10,000 to a San Joaquin County, California teacher to recognize outstanding teaching in a non-comprehensive high school, specifically a school that serves to educate students who have been unsuccessful in traditional school settings. The purpose of this award is to recognize an exemplary teacher who motivates at-risk students to give their personal best, in pursuit of a high school education, and who inspires students to continue their education beyond a high school diploma.

The recipient will receive a $5,000 cash award from CFF, to use as he or she wishes. The school, in which the recipient teaches, will also receive a cash award of $5,000, to be used for the enhancement of its program.
