Meet the Top 50 finalists for the Global Teacher Prize 2020!


Dear friends of the Glob­al Teacher Prize,

We hope you, and your fam­i­ly, are well and keep­ing safe dur­ing these strange times.

We have just announced the Glob­al Teacher Prize Top 50 Final­ists for 2020. As we live through this pan­dem­ic and glob­al edu­ca­tion sys­tems adapt to a new and unfa­mil­iar ter­rain, the one voice that should nev­er be drowned out is that of the teacher.  Now, more than ever, we must shine a light on the world’s teach­ers. Over the last few weeks, in a world turned upside down, we’ve been dai­ly remind­ed how much we rely on them.

And so, we plan to con­tin­ue shout­ing about their achieve­ments. In light of the pan­dem­ic how­ev­er, and the fact that it is all that seems to be in news nation­al­ly, and inter­na­tion­al­ly, press cov­er­age of the Top 50 Final­ists may be lim­it­ed and over­shad­owed. Please do help us spread the word by sup­port­ing the teach­ers from your coun­tries or the final­ists in gen­er­al through social media so that we can high­light their sto­ries and the incred­i­ble work they do even further.

Your help and their voic­es are even more crit­i­cal­ly impor­tant at a time like this.

Please do have a look at their pro­files at and please sup­port them through our social channels:

The Prize Com­mit­tee and the Judg­ing Acad­e­my have much work to do in the months ahead — The Top 10 and the win­ner will be announced lat­er in the year.

All the best, and please stay safe.
