The Magna Awards is a national recognition program that honors school board best practices and innovative programs that advance student learning. Magna nominations are judged according to three enrollment categories (less than 5,000 enrollment; 5,000-20,000 enrollment; and more than 20,000 enrollment) with one Grand Prize Winner in each category. Each Grand Prize Winner receives a $3,500 contribution from Sodexo School Services. There are five additional winners and five honorable mention winners within each enrollment category. All Magna winners and honorable mention recipients are recognized in a special supplement published with the April issue of American School Boards Journal. Winners and honorable mention recipients also are recognized at the School Leaders Luncheon held during the NSBA Annual Conference.
