The District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) has announced that a team of five Harvard graduate students — Jonathan Bailey, Christopher Cummings, Marvin Figueroa, Kendall Fitch, and Hanseul Kang — were named the 2010 winners of The Urban Education Redesign Challenge, for their public engagement and mobilization strategy for DCPS.

The challenge is a case competition, showcasing a critical and pressing issue and offering graduate students the opportunity to propose innovative solutions and strategies within the context of urban education reform at DCPS.

The Harvard team’s first-place finish comes with a $5,000 prize, a meeting with the DCPS Chancellor Michelle Rhee, and an offer to join the Urban Education Leaders Internship Program for the summer, which comes with a stipend.
