We’d like to get your help spreading the word about the opening of
2020 nominations for the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education. We
are looking for impactful educators in three categories: pre-K-12
education, higher education, and learning science research, with each
winner receiving an award of $50,000 and a prize sculpture.
As a note, last year's learning science research winner was our
research community's own Art Graesser -- so EDM folks really can win
The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Family Foundation and the University of
Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education announced last Thursday that
we have established a new partnership to enhance and expand the Harold
W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education, one of the most prestigious honors
in the field.
We are now accepting 2020 nominations to recognize outstanding
individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education and
whose accomplishments are making a huge impact. Nominations are now
open at mcgrawprize.com and will be accepted through 11:59PM ET on
April 15, 2020.
These three McGraw Prizes will be awarded October 21, 2020 in New York
City. Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges, who are
leaders in the field.
As an education thought leader and changemaker, we are asking you to
share this information with your network to encourage a strong group
of nominees who are advancing innovation in education.
