Last October, at the ACSP Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado, ACSP and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy introduced two new financial awards designed to support the development and dissemination of innovative curricula and educational case studies. The Case Study and Innovative Curriculum Awards competitions were very successful, with more than 100 entries submitted between the two categories.

"Winning projects will receive financial support and become part of the Lincoln Institute's forthcoming digital case library," said Lourdes Germán, Director, International & Institute-wide Initiatives with the Lincoln Institute. "Our goal is to provide a platform for sharing land policy knowledge in compelling ways across different cities, regions, and countries."

The Case Study Award winners were announced in February 2018.

The Curriculum Innovation Award recognizes three educators who develop and implement courses to help prepare future planners to solve economic, social, and environmental challenges facing communities worldwide, with measurable student success. Each winner will receive a $10,000 reward, bringing the total prize money between the twenty awards to $47,000.
