Three first-place winners will each receive $100,000: $70,000 to the high school skilled trades program and $30,000 to the individual skilled trades teacher (or teacher team) behind the winning program. Fifteen second-place winners will each be awarded $50,000: $35,000 to the high school program and $15,000 to the teacher/team.
