The Cmolik Prize is awarded biennially to who have developed and implemented an invention, innovation, concept, process or procedure that enhances educational practice in the K-12 public school system in BC. The award was endowed to the Faculty of Education, Simon Fraser University by Mr. and Mrs. Cmolik. The Prize arises from their passion for education and inspirations gained by their visits to schools around the world. It encourages practitioners, researchers, administrators, and policy makers to enrich teaching and learning, particularly to stimulate a desire to learn and to develop life skills to become productive and responsible members of our community.
