Winners will be announced at a community forum from 5:15 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 22 at the KNPB Channel 5 Public Broadcasting office at 1670 N. Virginia St. on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. The forum will focus on how to institutionalize responsibility throughout the community and all stakeholders to provide an educational system to a common purpose, where graduates are skilled, self-reliant, critical thinkers and responsible members of society, without constraining the job of the education sector.
