2014 WISE Prize call for nominations


The WISE Prize recognizes an individual or a team of up to six people for an outstanding contribution to education. The achievements of the nominated individual or team should have had a significant and lasting impact upon education at any level and should demonstrate an inspiring and visionary approach.

The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) announces the 2014 WISE Prize and welcomes nominations by individuals or institutions - including schools, international organizations and private companies - from anywhere in the world.

Nominations will be screened by a 12-person Committee which will make a pre-selection of no more than 15 candidates, whose identities will not be made public. An international Jury of distinguished individuals will then consider these nominees and select the Laureate who will be announced at the 2014 Summit to be held on November 4-6, 2014 in Doha, Qatar.

The global call for nominations is open until March 31, 2014 before 11:59 PM, GMT.
