The Ruby Peck Foundation for Children‘s Education is committed to the pursuit of knowledge and believes that a child‘s opportunity to learn and develop the gift of his or her imagination should not be limited by economic classifications, social status, physical challenges or geographical boundaries.
These core values are reflected in our deep commitment to support a broad base of children‘s programs that promote learning through creative education. By inspiring our children to embrace the richness of their cultural and individual expressions today, we can lay the foundation for tomorrow‘s dreamers, teachers, healers, leaders and visionaries.

To encourage the use of creativity and innovation in children's education.
To recognize and reward successful academic programs and educators around the nation and around the world for their commitment and achievements.
