Winners and Special Honors
The winners of the Education for All (EFA) Crowdsourcing Challenge were selected by an international jury from hundreds of ideas on how mobile communication can help achieve EFA goals. The Pearson Foundation offered each of the six winners US$3,000 along with a library of children’s books worth US$3,000 to a not-for-profit in the country of each sub-challenge winner. Winners included ideas from participants in India, United States, Kenya, and China. In addition to the prizes, Nokia offered a Nokia Lumia 800 phone to the best idea received during each sub-challenge.
