The U.S. Department of Education confirmed the 10 winners of the second round of the Race to the Top competition late this morning as the news trickled out state by state from members of Congress, who were notified first.

Eighteen states, plus the District of Columbia, had been finalists for the remaining $3.4 billion in federal funds in the Race to the Top program—money that the administration hopes will transform education across the country.

The 10 awards are expected to each be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Just two states, Delaware and Tennessee, won money in the first round of the competition earlier this year.

We'll have more on the winners—and on the states the didn't make the cut—shortly at Politics K-12.
