Winners receive $5,000 and their schools receive an additional $2,500 to enhance the economics curriculum. Winners are also celebrated at CEE’s annual Visionary Awards dinner each October, an event popular with leaders in business, education, economics, and the media. Additional grant funds support a series of three-day training boot camps and other online and in-person professional development programs that reach over 55,000 teachers per year, two-thirds of whom teach in schools serving students from low-income families.

The grant’s funds support these and related activities for a period of three years.
