The most prestigious award for Colorado educators
The Manufacturing Industry Learning Lab (The MiLL) is a finalist for the 2020 Colorado Succeeds Prize in the "Transformational Impact in a High Schoo"l category.

A unique collaboration between Peyton and Widefield school districts in Colorado Springs, the MiLL offers career-connected learning in manufacturing and construction, equipping students with essential skills in creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem-solving, communication and collaboration, and more.
Winners will be announced through a televised program in September. Winners in each category will be awarded $15,000 and runners-up in each category will receive $5,000.
