iInspire is an award sponsored by the Educating Children of Color Summit (ECOC) and the Minority Overrepresentation Committee.  iInspire recognizes youth from El Paso County, Colorado, who have overcome adversity and inspired others to do the same.  iInspire’s goal is to recognize those youth who might not receive recognition, but definitely deserve it.  Think of the youth who earns a GED while caring for an ill relative, the youth who overcomes a serious illness, the youth who creates a non-profit organization, or the youth who manages to use social media to return a lost wallet to its owner.
