These awards are based on achievement data generated by the Measures of Academic Progress from the North West Evaluation Association (NWEA). The award is given annually to two outstanding districts and schools that provide evidence that over 60% of their students show growth in academic achievement.

Both schools  received $3,000 with their awards that are sponsored through a grant by the Walton Family Foundation. The announcement was made at the association's fall conference in Hot Springs.
