The World Education Medals are a joint global initiative of T4 Education and HP that recognise leaders sparking change in education. By providing them a platform and a network of like-minded peers working towards quality education, we aim to build and nurture a community of leaders who are shaping the future of education. The World Education Medals are made up of three Medals: the Africa Education Medal, the Asia Education Medal and the Latin America Education Medal. For each one of them, we will select a winner.
Anyone aged 18 years or older can nominate individuals for any of the World Education Medals, as long as you have enough information to fill out the form and their contact details for us to contact the nominee. You can also either apply for yourself or be nominated by someone else.
No, we only accept nominations for individuals, not organisations. The World Education Medals are awarded to individuals. But you can nominate an individual for their work on behalf of an organisation.
Different individuals can nominate the same candidate through different forms, although the amount of nominations for the same person has no bearing on the judging process. That being the case, we will pick the best submission based on the quality and clarity of information to assess the candidate against our criteria.
You may only submit a single application for yourself. If you submit more than one application, we will only consider the last submission and disregard the earlier ones. The amount of applications has no bearing on the judging process.
No, we only accept nominations written in English. Any submission written in any other language will not be considered. We don’t assess nominations against English proficiency, but the clarity in the communication and writing of your answers will count on the assessment of your nomination.
Nominees can run for any of the three World Education Medals: Africa Education Medal, Asia Education Medal or Latin America Education Medal. They don’t necessarily have to be born or live in the countries in those regions, but they need to prove that the scope of their work is within those geographies, aiming at improving the state of education in one or more countries of any given region, in any of the following areas: early childhood education, K-12, university and / or vocational education.
If the candidate meets all three criteria and can prove the impact of their work in the three regions showing significant progress, then they are eligible for the three Medals. In this case, they should submit three different forms – one for each Medal.
We don’t request a particular type of relationship between nominator and nominee to be able to make a nomination as long as you have their contact details to share with us and solid information to make the nomination.
If you are nominating someone else, you need to have permission to share their personal data and contact details with us. Once you submit the nomination, we will email your nominee to inform them about the nomination and obtain their consent to enter the contest. If for any reason we can’t get in touch with your nominee to obtain their consent, your nomination will expire. Therefore, please make sure you provide us with an email address where we can contact your nominee.
The World Education Medals comprise three Medals – for each we will select one winner. These three winners will be awarded an honorific title, through a platform that recognises, visibilises and amplifies the work this individual is carrying out. All winners will also be awarded the right to nominate a school of their choice to receive membership at no cost to T4 Education’s Best School To Work programme - an independent, evidence-based mechanism to certify schools for their culture and help them transform their working environment to attract and retain the best teachers.
