The 2017 Phillip B. Lindy Award for Excellence in K-16 Partnerships
The Phillip B. Lindy Award aims to recognize a collaborative partnership between at least one K-12 school and one university. This award will be given to the entire partnership, not an individual. Phil Lindy valued collaboration and communication among diverse stakeholders in order to maximize impact.

Through establishing the K-16 Partnerships Network at PHENND, he hoped to bring that philosophy to the world of university-school partnerships. The Lindy Award seeks to honor partnerships that focus on meeting articulated school and community needs and that have goals for long-term commitment. At the 2017 K-16 Partnerships Network June Institute, an award of $1,000 will be given to the selected K-16 Partnership to enhance the mission and vision of this partnership (e.g., partner meetings, collaborative technologies, trainings, celebrations, outreach).
