Friday, April 25, 2014

On April 25, Pittsburgh was honored for "breaking the mold" in the field of education. Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, Gregg Behr of The Grable Foundation and Cathy Lewis Long of the Sprout Fund accepted a prestigious Tribeca Disruptive Innovation award in New York City. They were representing the city of Pittsburgh and the Kids+Creativity Network - a wide-ranging collaborative network of people from education, museums, libraries, community centers, higher education and the technology industry all working to remake learning. Our region was honored for its effort to spark learning - in any setting. A number of GWP members have invested in the Kids+Creativity Network and its member organizations, helping to build a vibrant local ecosystem for lifelong learning.
