Nominating for the Yidan Prize

We welcome all nominations. You don’t need to be invited to submit nominations for either the Education Research or Education Development prize.

You cannot make a nomination (or support one) if:

  • you’d like to recognize your immediate family member(s)
  • you’d like to recognize—or you are—one of our current board directors, or on our current Judging or Advisory Committees
  • you’d like to recognize someone posthumously*.

*In the sad event that an individual nominee dies during the judging process, we’ll withdraw their nomination. If they were part of a team, we’ll still consider the rest of the team’s nomination.
