Patrick Henry Elementary School in Colorado Springs School District 11 is a finalist for The Succeeds Prize for Transformational Impact in an Elementary School.

The award honors the transformational impact and educational excellence of Colorado’s public schools and educators in five categories.

CEOs from Colorado businesses will announced the winners at a live reveal celebration on Sept. 18. Each will receive $15,000 in cash, to fund ongoing innovation in schools and positive educational outcomes.

“It’s an honor for our school community to be recognized for our efforts to provide all students with high-quality learning experiences,” Principal Brian Casebeer said in a news release.

Oak Creek Elementary School in Harrison School District 2 was noted as an honorable mention in the elementary school category.

This is the second year for the award. In its inaugural debut last year, two Colorado Springs schools took prizes.

Mountain Vista Community School, a K-8 school in Harrison School District 2, won best Transformational Impact in a Middle School, and Bristol Elementary School in Colorado Springs School District 11 was selected for Excellence in STEM Education

The Succeeds Prize is sponsored by the business community in partnership with Colorado Succeeds, 9NEWS/KUSA and mindSpark Learning, a nonprofit dedicated to impacting and evolving education.

Colorado Succeeds works year-round to identify and share what’s working in schools statewide so every student in Colorado can benefit.

Winners are selected by a prestigious group of education, government and business leaders.

The categories are:

•--  Transformational Impact in an Elementary School (grades K-5) – Presented by TTEC

-- • Transformational Impact in a Middle School (grades 6-8) – Presented by DaVita

-- • Transformational Impact in a High School (grades 9-12) – Presented by Western Union Foundation
