Due to the current situation we are all facing, with over half the world’s student population (over 850 million young people) subjected to school closures, many of this years’ Global Goal Competition teams have been working remotely and in isolation, a number will have been forced to put their project on hold temporarily. We expect that the majority of final submissions we receive will have been created before major planned actions or events have taken place. Impact will therefore be much harder to evidence for many of our teams.
In light of this, the weighting of the three components of the judging criteria in the Global Goals Competition has been adjusted for the 2019-20 cohort. This year we are affording a greater importance to section 1 (The team’s learning and knowledge gained) and section 3 (special recognition) than section 2 (impact).
