Each school receives a plaque and monetary award. The high school level winner receives $3,000; the middle level $2,000; and the elementary level $1,000. The award encourages schools to continue their efforts in closing the achievement gap for all students.
The award honors Cowan, a former Auburn School District superintendent, for her 30 years of service in the school district, 40 years total in public education, and for her dedication to improving the quality of education for all children.
