A $1mm Opportunity for Jackson, Mississippi Area Schools
The Talent Dividend Prize is a $1 million prize to be awarded to the city that exhibits the greatest increase in the number of post secondary degrees granted per one thousand population over a four-year period and achieves its Talent Dividend. This $1 million prize will be used to launch a national promotional campaign centered around talent development for the winning city. According to the Eligible Cities section of the Talent Dividend Web site, the Jackson metro area is the only metro area in the state that is eligible. It appears that any “city” in the metro area can apply, but there can be only one city. Hopefully, an application will be made.
