This Award recognizes the outstanding performance of teachers and the practice and delivery of exceptional programs.

It offers professional development courses for teachers and innovative school programs, such as the Student Enterprise Program and the Stock Market Game. According to George Vredeveld, the center's founding director, "these programs have shown dramatic results." NCEE president, Robert Duvall, praised the UC Economics Center as a model for centers across the nation.
