Highlights 2020

Finalist Program

This year’s cohort of 80 finalists convened virtually over the course of two weeks due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The group included a mechanic from Kumasi, Ghana; an artist from Belo Horizonte, Brazil; a writer from Kolkata, India; and an engineer from Charlotte, North Carolina; whose curiosities ranged from theology to activism to civil engineering. Women comprised 58% of the finalist cohort.

This program gave me insight into the type of innovation that is needed in the education sector.
