The Santa Fe Institute is pleased to announce its two annual prizes for the academic year 2014-15. The Student Prize will be awarded to one graduating senior from each of Santa Fe’s public and private secondary schools. The Teacher Prize will be awarded to one math, science, or computer science teacher selected from among all of the public and private secondary and middle schools in Santa Fe.

The purpose of the Student Prize is to honor outstanding science students who embody the spirit of scientific pursuit and by such recognition, to encourage Santa Fe's students to explore the challenges of science in general. The Teacher Prize acknowledges creativity, originality, academic rigor, and professional excellence. Each prize includes a cash award and a Santa Fe Institute book on complexity science inscribed by SFI co-founder and Nobel Laureate Murray Gell-Mann.

The awards will be given to the prize recipients at our annual award ceremony held at the Santa Fe Institute on May 13 2015 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
