As part of Designing Equitable Learning, youth from around the world were invited to respond to one of three question prompts:
1) How can education help create a more equitable world?
2) What does designing equitable learning mean to you?
3) How can schools give youth more voice and power?
Over 30 young people submitted their creations, and their voices are incredibly powerful! We are so grateful to these youth who are actively contributing to greater equity in education in the world around them. Each one of them deserves recognition and praise!
Given the difficult task to rate the most compelling submissions, an independent review panel at Juxtaposition Arts awarded a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place creation, along with seven Honorable Mentions. With deep appreciate for ALL youth who participated, we recognize these chosen creations:
