Winners and finalists in seven regions (Africa & Middle East, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, Europe, Latin America & Caribbean, United Kingdom, United States & Canada) will be selected after an interview and evaluation by an international panel of academic experts. Students will be evaluated on writing improvement and commitment to academic integrity. Winners will be announced in October 2016.

“Over the last two years, over 1,000 nominations from over 50 countries have been submitted to the Turnitin Global Innovation Awards,” said Gill Rowell, chair of the Global Innovation Awards Program at Turnitin. “Each year it’s an inspiration to read all of the extraordinary stories from educators about how they help students improve their writing and respect the tenets of honesty and integrity.”
