DENVER (AP) - Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter will be presented with recommendations from the teams working on Colorado's race to the top federal grant proposals for education reform.

Ritter will be joined by Lt. Gov. Barbara O'Brien and Education Commissioner Dwight Jones on Friday when panels studying education programs hand in their reports.

Colorado is now competing for a chance to win up to $175 million in extra stimulus dollars for education reforms from the Obama Administration.

State officials originally expected a shot at up to $300 million. But the prize for states of Colorado's size turned out to be smaller when the White House released details on Thursday.
