Spotlight 2019

Pittsburgh, USA

In 2019, HundrED is shining a spotlight on the educators and innovators who are doing extraordinary things to help students in southwestern Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia flourish. The HundrED Spotlight Pittsburgh will identify inspiring innovations from the Pittsburgh region and share them with the world.
Together with The Grable Foundation & Remake Learning

Education Innovation Forged in the Steel City

For more than a decade, educators in the Pittsburgh region have been taking risks, reaching higher, and pushing the limits of learning. In 2019, in partnership with the Grable Foundation and Remake Learning, the HundrED Spotlight on Pittsburgh is shining a light on the educators and innovators doing extraordinary things to help students in southwestern Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia flourish. The submission period is now closed.

Submissions are currently undergoing HundrED’s research process and a decision making process by a local advisory committee. In May 2019, we’ll announce the Spotlight collection of the most impactful, scalable, and innovative ideas from the Pittsburgh region. Until then, you can explore all of the innovations submitted to the Pittsburgh Spotlight below!
