The World’s Best School Prizes, founded by T4 Education is now open to Nigerian schools.

A statement by the organisation said the prize was in collaboration with the world’s most prestigious education prizes including Accenture, American Express, Yayasan Hasanah, Templeton World Charity Foundation, and the Lemann Foundation.

It revealed that there were five prizes schools could apply for, namely The World’s Best School Prize for Community Collaboration, The World’s Best School Prize for Environmental Action, The World’s Best School Prize for Innovation,  The World’s Best School Prize for Overcoming Adversity, and   The World’s Best School Prize for Supporting Healthy Lives.

Founder of T4 Education and the World’s Best School Prizes, Vikas Pota, said governments must ensure quality education is a right, not a luxury.

“Governments must take urgent action to tackle the global education crisis and ensure quality education is a right, not a luxury.

 “We founded the World’s Best School Prizes to create the conversations that lead to lasting change. Conversations between educators learning from one another’s vital solutions, and conversations in the halls and corridors of power where leaders must sit up and listen to those on the front.

“A top 10 shortlist for each prize will be announced in June 2023, followed by the Top 3 finalists for each prize in September. The winner of each prize will be chosen based on rigorous criteria by a Judging Academy comprising distinguished leaders from all across the globe including academics, educators, NGOs, social entrepreneurs, government, civil society, and the private sector.

“The winners will be announced in October 2023.”
