The Border Research Partnership is pleased to announce the winners of the 2012 Awards for U.S.-Mexico Crossborder Collaboration and Innovation:
Overview on Awards
The Border Research Partnership (comprising the Mexico Institute of the Woodrow Wilson Center, El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, and the North American Center for Transborder Studies at Arizona State University) announces its 2012 Awards for U.S.-Mexico Crossborder Collaboration and Innovation. The Partnership's second annual awards competition honor bi-national collaboration and innovation in public safety, local economic development, transportation planning, environmental stewardship, education, health, and the arts, among other fields. Awardees are selected by a prestigious binational selection committee, which reflects the bi-national identity, diversity, and spirit of the border—with members from business, government, academia, and the non-profit sector. Awards are conferred at a major binational event with travel paid for winning entries. The publication of a bilingual book profiling all award finalists (the Spanish version is available here) serves to tell the often-overlooked success stories of U.S.-Mexico collaboration, emphasizing the good work of institutions, non-profits, and other organizations.
