WISE awards nomination open


Educationists, school managers, teachers and students from Pakistan can apply for the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) awards, which are likened to Nobel Prize in education, according to a press release issued by WISE administration. At the opening ceremony of 2013 WISE Awards Applications, Sheikh Abdulla, chairman of WISE said, “There is a lot Pakistan can teach the world”. The awards are launched by the WISE administration, Doha. Since its inception in 2009, Pakistan has failed to win any nomination in awards. The WISE opened the submission period for the 2013 WISE awards seeking out and honoring projects that solve real-world barriers to education and are ultimately creating a toolbox of best-practices in education.
