It’s been a good news Friday for choice.

The latest: Waukesha-based Open Sky Education is now a semifinalist for the annual $1 million Yass Prize. Congratulations!

The Yass Prize is a competition overseen by the Center for Education Reform spotlighting education providers who aspire to deliver education that is Sustainable, Transformational, Outstanding, and Permissionless (STOP).

As a semifinalist of the Yass Prize, Open Sky Education will receive a $200,000 award and will take part in a four-week hybrid accelerator program, in addition to earning a chance to compete for the grand prize.

The money awarded to Open Sky will fund the mission of its newest division, Soaring Education Services, to expand access to Christian education nationally via Christian microschools.

“We are honored to have our innovative education reform efforts recognized and to be afforded the opportunity to showcase our work on a national stage,” said National Director of Soaring Education Services Jack Preus in an Open Sky press release.
