XV  National Francisca Radke Education Prize 

2013-2014 version –  Call and regulations

Since its creation, the Francisca Radke Foundation for the development of the National Pedagogical University has had the missionary purpose of supporting the development and work of the UPN and of education in Colombia.

In 1997, the Foundation guided its actions to exalt and reward the work of the teacher and in support of this recognition the National Prize of Education Francisca Radke was created, whose name is a tribute to the work done in favor of education by the German teacher Francisca Radke.

In 2007, a strategic alliance was consolidated with the University of Antioquia, an entity that is another organizer of the Prize, making important contributions that strengthen it.

The Prize has three basic objectives:
