Britannica honors educators and students with the first annual StandOut Awards and nearly $24K in cash prizes. 

“Now, more than ever, we need inspired and inspiring individuals, committed to building strong communities, and prioritizing character in an academic world that pulls us in so many different directions.”

Karthik Krishnan, Britannica Group CEO

Every act, big or small, has the opportunity to change a life, a school, a community. This year we want to hear about the character of students and educators, like you, who have exemplified extraordinary and inspiring characteristics. Characteristics that have helped to make an impact on students and classrooms.

How have you impacted students’ lives and helped them to build up their own character? How has your community been impacted by your efforts?

Tell Us Your Story.
