I live outside of the United States. Can I still apply?
Yes, any international applicants may apply. Any international applicant who wins will receive one roundtrip ticket from the point of entry into the United States. For example, if someone from Kenya wins in a category, and the winner flies to Miami, EdSurge/Digital Promise will pay for one roundtrip flight from Miami to Mountain View.
What happens if I'm nominated for an award by someone else?
When someone nominates you, we will send you a form that invites you to fill out 2-3 other questions and submit a video explaining your qualification for the award. If you would like to apply for another award, as opposed to the award you were nominated for, check out our list of awards.
Yes, you may apply for as many awards (in your respective category) as you’d like. You may only apply to each award once, and you must fill out a separate application for each one. Finally, you can only win one award.
Finalists will win a free round-trip flight and hotel accommodations to the Bay Area, a seat and dinner at the Digital Learning in Innovation Awards Gala on November 20, and an official DILA Trophy and digital badge. Your work will also be featured on the EdSurge and Digital Promise sites.
What are the important dates in the application process?
Applications will open on April 15 and remain open until 11:59 PM PST on August 24. Judging will commence on September 1, and winners will be announced in late October. Winners will attend the Awards Gala on November 20.
