The 11th annual Educating Children of Color Summit will be held Jan. 13 at Colorado College.

The daylong event encourages all youth, particularly children of color and those in poverty, to pursue higher education and provides students the opportunity to receive scholarships and new technology.

Students, parents and educators are invited.

Students in the eighth grade and above and their parents can attend for free and are encouraged to register by the Dec. 23 deadline.

The registration cost for educators is $35, with the opportunity to receive continuing education credits and, for the first time, the Rachel Pedraza Dewey Scholarship for Educators.

Workshops for students at the event include information on college prep, career options, goal-setting and staying motivated.

Parents and educators can attend workshops focusing on inspiring students and holding them accountable for success.

Students are encouraged to apply for a scholarship, with more than $12,000 being awarded at the event.

The Educating Children of Color Summit has awarded more than $140,000 in scholarships and 140 laptops to students since 2008.
