Schools, students, organizations, start-ups, associations, universities and citizens from all over the world can join the call by presenting by October 31st the projects that during the health emergency have best managed to combine innovation and quality of training with inclusion, by actively involving families and the various actors in the relating area.

The contest is enriched by the “Tullio De Mauro special prize to the school that innovates and includes”, dedicated to the linguist Tullio De Mauro who led the Fondazione Mondo Digitale for over ten years.
The award was created to continue to enhance the valuable role of head teachers and teachers who work daily by combining inclusion and quality of the training offer. The Foundation solicits both spontaneous applications from professionals, and recommendations from colleagues, parents, students, and from the entire educational community, in the various areas linked to their school of reference.
The call, which is open until 31 October 2021, is reserved for schools of all types and levels and is divided into two categories: teachers and head teachers. The finalist projects in each category will have the opportunity to present their works during the final event of the Global Junior Challenge 2021 in Rome.
The jury is carefully selected by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale and gives a voice to the world of institutions and education. The Indire researcher Letizia Cinganotto will be part of the jury.
