People’s Choice Award

Shortlisted entries will be invited to submit a short video for online public voting to determine the winner of an additional ‘People’s Choice’ award which could come from any of the four categories above.

Note on judging (does not apply to People’s Choice)

In seeking to recognise and reward good practice, the judges particularly value impact that is evidenced through feedback, evaluation, peer review etc. NEEA impact will be judged within the local context, so large student numbers will not influence the judging process.

Each submission will be read by a panel of independent judges. Judges will be required to declare any conflict of interest. Where such a conflict exists the judge concerned will not judge that entry.

Judging Panel

Joint Chairs of the Panel are EEUK Directors Emma Forouzan and Neil Coles.

The panel will comprise Fellows and Honorary Fellows of EEUK – names will be announced soon.
