Applications are now being accepted for the 2006 Intel and Scholastic Schools of Distinction awards. The program, which was established by Scholastic (, the children’s publishing company, and Intel (, the chip-maker and technology corporation, rewards schools for programs that promote student achievement and innovation in education.

These winners will be recognized for having a comprehensive program addressing technology, strong involvement of parents and the community, ongoing professional development, great teamwork, and for consistently achieving high academic standards.

Each category winner receives a $10,000 grant from the Intel Foundation and a host of educational products provided by Scholastic."Best of the Best" winners receive an additional $15,000 from the Intel Foundation, for a total of $25,000.
