Information about the 2020 Awards

We never cease to be amazed and impressed by the incredible projects, publications and activities our members have developed or are involved in. Many of these are at world leading practice, so we should not only acknowledge and celebrate them, but also showcase these to other members.

To enable this, at each International Conference we have an Excellence Awards activity. In early 2020, we will invite members and institutions to reflect on the terrific projects, publications and activities that have occurred since July 2018 and to submit a nomination by 15 July 2020.
 
These will then be judged by a select group of our Fellows. Judges have the option to award winners in both School and Tertiary organisations as well as in smaller less resourced institutions. These awards provide significant Industry recognition and kudos for both members and their institutions.
 

The 3 finalists from each category will be offered a free TEDx style Presentation Training Course (either online or at the half day pre-conference workshop) and also invited to showcase their entries at an Awards Breakfast on Thursday 6 September with the Winners announced at the Awards Lunch later that day. 


Who could apply? Awards are open to Educate Plus members in both the tertiary and school sectors. The judges have the option to  award a winner in each sector. Projects commenced after July 2018  are eligible.

Opening Date Closing Date: TBA

Judging: This is completed by Educate Plus Fellows who have specialised in a particular field.

What will you win: Acknowledgment and kudos from colleagues, an engraved plaque, written citation and certificate, free TEDx style presentation course, the opportunity to share and showcase nominations at the International and selected Chapter Conferences.
