Awards recognize outstanding and innovative programs that improve outcomes in classrooms throughout San Diego

San Diego County Credit Union, San Diego's largest locally-owned financial institution, is proud to recognize exemplary innovations in education by serving as a sponsor of the 17th Annual Innovation in Education Awards, presented by the San Diego County Office of Education and the Classroom of the Future Foundation (CFF).

Since 2004, CFF has recognized innovative programs and projects in San Diego County that have demonstrated the power and scope of ways to improve K-12 education. The educational community has embraced the annual CFF Innovation in Education Awards as recognition of exemplary innovations. The CFF mission statement is: "To unite business, community and educational leaders in creating innovative learning environments in San Diego County public schools that prepare our students to thrive in a competitive, global society."

Nominations are submitted by teachers, principals, district administrators, business partners and volunteers about an innovative project or program in a classroom, school or district. Awards are presented in four categories, including Inspire, Innovate, Achieve and Impact. The Inspire Award is for a program that gets kids excited about learning. The Innovate Award showcases a creative and unique program that enhances student learning. The Achieve Award demonstrates tangible results and evidence that drives student learning. The Impact Award is a best-of-show award given to one entry that best embodies the other three categories. CFF presents a trophy and a check for $5,000 to winners in the Inspire, Innovate and Achieve categories. A $10,000 check is presented for the entry in the Impact category, signifying the best of the best.
