Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have decided to increase the visibility and potential prize pool for those students and educators who are still able to participate in the Jacobs Institute Changemaker Challenge. Instead of allowing each educator to submit one team’s pitch, we are going to allow each educator to submit up to three teams’ pitches.
We ask each educator to consider their submissions and limit submissions to those student teams who performed well during your “in-class” pitch event using the Pactful Pitch Rubric. We will use this rubric during our evaluation.
A few reminders for the final submission process:
You will need to complete the educator submission form before 11:59 PM PDT on May 22.
You need to submit a recorded pitch URL for each team. We recommend you upload the team’s video pitch to your school’s YouTube channel. The URL you provide to us must be available publicly, so please check the URL before sending it to us.
Pitch recordings must be no longer than 5 minutes.
Please reference the team and project name as they appear in Pactful so we confirm their journey in Pactful.
To make it easier to understand what information we’ll collect for each student team, we’ve included a copy of the form below.
