The Microsoft KCI Innovation Award honors three exemplary, innovative teacher-student collaborative projects that fully integrate technology and benefit the Silicon Valley educational community.

The first place entry is awarded $6,000. The second place award is $3,000 and the third place award is $1,000. The awardees will be honored at the special evening recognition event on March 23, 2017. Awardees must be present at the recognition event to receive award.

Any K-12 educator, team of educators, or school with a commitment to technology infused education in Silicon Valley is eligible to apply. Winners agree to allow their name, affiliation, project or program information to be published for promotional purposes.

All entries will be judged by a blind panel of reviewers on a balanced assessment of the following criteria:
1. Collaboration between teacher and students (emphasis on the degree of participation of students in creating and developing the final project).

2. Significance of the project outcome with respect to:
a) demonstration of 21st century skills (creativity, collaboration, communication, creativity & problem solving) and
b) the unique education culture in Silicon Valley

3. Broader impact of project in the community (i.e., what is the potential number of people served by the project)

4. Quality of the learning artifact or project(s), including the written description

5. Replicability (i.e., How easily can the project be shared and replicated in a similar setting?)
