The schools in this list are being recognized because they face many challenges and do so with resounding success. The challenges these schools must meet are not all the same. Some schools face challenges of overcrowding, lack of resources, and even poverty, while others face geographical or social challenges.
Each school in this list refused to allow its circumstances to hold back its students. We’ve scoured American schools for those that meet their challenges head-on, that continually raise their expectations despite their circumstances, and that offer encouragement and insights for educators everywhere.
Because the student bodies of the schools in this list represent all walks of life and all configurations of grades, it would be inappropriate to rank them. For this reason, we present them in alphabetical order.

Paulding Putnam Electric Co-op urges Farmers to Work Safely around Electric Lines
Paulding Putnam Electric is urging farm workers to practice safe behavior when working and operating equipment around electric lines. Overhead power lines often share space with farms, and this is exactly why we feel it is important to get this safety message out to the public. Serious and even fatal accidents can occur when workers and the equipment they operate make contact with the utility lines. To help farm workers safely work around electric, PPEC offers these six specific safety tips:
- Look up! Always look up for overhead power lines before beginning any activity.
- Follow 10-foot rule. Keep everything — you, the tools and materials you are handling, and the equipment you are operating — as far away as possible from all overhead power lines and never come closer than 10 feet. Any contact with wires by branches, pipe or equipment can be fatal. Higher voltage lines require greater distances. If you are uncertain of the voltage and clearance requirement for a power line, remain at least 20 feet away or call PPEC for assistance.
- Call 811 before you dig. Always know what’s below before digging in the ground or you run the risk of breaking an underground gas or electric line. Every three minutes nationwide, an underground utility line is damaged during a digging project. For all projects big and small, call 811 at least two business days before you dig to have professional locators mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags, chalk-based spray paint or both.
- If you hit a power pole or electric lines, always call 911 first and then PPEC at 1-800-686-2357, and stay away from damaged power lines until help arrives. Even if you don’t bring a structure or wire down, you might have weakened the structure or created a hazardous situation. The best advice is to stay inside a farming vehicle until help arrives.
- Irrigate with care. Do not spray water on overhead power lines, electrical equipment or electrical structures. Doing so can damage equipment, and a stream of water hitting a power line can create a path for electricity to travel back to you.
- Use caution when moving equipment. Never stand an irrigation pipe on its end near a power line. Always lower grain augers and other crop handling and tillage equipment before moving them anywhere near power lines. Never store materials directly underneath or adjacent to power lines. Beware of hooking guy wires when moving equipment.
Paulding Putnam Electric Cooperative wants to make sure everyone stays safe. If you have questions or concerns about safety, please contact PPEC’s Safety & Compliance Manager, Dee Renollet at 1-800-686-2357.
