After six months and well over 1000 applications commenced, this year’s record-breaking Reimagine Education Awards cycle has now come to a close. Excepting the few who, claiming extenuating circumstances, were granted brief extensions, all submissions have now been transferred to at least three external judges for review.
Attempting to ensure that applicants can rest assured that their projects are evaluated with unparalleled rigor, just under 200 judges have been recruited by the Reimagine Education team. This ensures that all submissions will receive at least three evaluations, and the eventual winner will have its excellence corroborated by 13 judges from across the educational spectrum.
Applicants can expect the shortlist to be announced by Monday 16th October.
Education’s best conversations – that’s what we’re seeking to provide. We want you to be a part of them, and invite all of our readers – judges, applicants, faculty, entrepreneurs – to join Google, Amazon, IBM, MIT, UCL, LSE, NYU, and Columbia in Philadelphia on the 4th and 5th December. Don’t miss out!
Since our previous release, a range of educational experts have confirmed that they’ll be contributing to December’s conversations, including Rose Luckin of UCL, Alyssa Wise of NYU, Noah Drezner of Columbia University, and Genevieve Shaker of the University of Indiana Bloomington.
