Awards of $2,000 to New Hampshire elementary, K-8, middle, and high schools to honor exemplary practices and excellence. Before applying, applicants must submit a very brief "Intent to Apply" form. The winning school at each level will receive, in addition to the cash award, state-wide recognition, a school banner, and a beautifully engraved school bell signifying excellence in education. The Awards Ceremony is scheduled for June 9, 2018 at the Center of New Hampshire.

Selected schools serve as representatives of excellence for the many excellent New Hampshire public schools. Each selected school is expected to share its best practices and programs with other interested schools, through conversation, networking, on site school visits, or participation in conferences or other professional events.
