For Distinguished Innovation and Service to Education

The Ellis Walker Woods Award is an annual cash prize given by the Brock Institute for Education Innovation to a school or community leader who has displayed a distinguished history of innovation and service to the local school community.

In the spirit of Woods’s legacy, nominees should be characterized by dedication, equity, excellence, and service to education over their tenure. Recipients of this award will be honored at a reception hosted by the Brock Institute at OSU-Tulsa and given the opportunity to present a keynote address.
