Twelve finalists have been selected for the Educators’ Challenge Awards. Choose your favorite below. 

One finalist will win the People’s Choice Award and 1000 USD in prize money. The winner will be selected based on the number of video likes as well as the quality and quantity of conversations started in the form of comments garnered.

Vote for your favorite pedagogical tool by “liking” the video on YouTube and/or leaving a comment that progresses the discussion on how we can better address the greatest challenges of our time. Voting ends on May 1, 2019, and the winner will be announced May 15 at the Educators' Challenge Awards, an event co-hosted by London School of Economics-Institute of Global Affairs.
