Review and Evaluation

Thank you to all of those who submitted by the Final Submission deadline of February 15th at 11:30pm PST! We are excited to review each of your proposals as we move into the evaluation process.

After the Final Submission Deadline, GCI, OpenIDEO, and a panel of Evaluators representing expertise in the early childhood field will evaluate submissions using the Prize Evaluation Criteria. After 6 weeks of evaluation, winners will be informed. At the end of May 2018, we will announce the Top Ideas - a set of solutions that represent most promising innovations in each innovator tier and opportunity area. Top Ideas will receive a funding award. In addition, a set of Promising Ideas will also receive recognition. 


During this phase, all ideas will be locked for review. Community members may still comment, share feedback and engage with idea proposals.
