VWBPE 2022
Thinkerer Award

Deadline: January 31, 2022

In 2014, the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Organizational Committee instituted a new personal achievement award to recognize an individual who has provided outstanding service to both the field of education and the virtual world community at large.

If you know of someone who deserves to be recognized for their contribution to the field of education and immersive environments, we encourage you to submit them as a nominee for the 2022 Thinkerer Award. Nominations are currently open until Monday, January 31, 2022.

Nomination criteria and the submission form can be found on our website at https://vwbpe.org/conference/vwbpe2022-thinkerer-award-nomination.

Final selection of the award recipient will be conducted by the VWBPE Organizational Committee by Sunday, February 13, 2022 and will be announced publicly during the conference closing ceremonies on Saturday, April 2, 2022.
