This award, established in 2018, recognizes alumni who have clearly defined a problem and provided a solution that includes metrics to measure impact. Solutions should be sustainable and have the potential to scale. They also must include a digital component. While solutions can be early prototypes, they must have been tested with the end-user community. The award will be given to alumni who have created positive change by solving a complex problem using technology. Strong nominations will show how HKS provided either inspiration or resources, or served as a place where nominees generated or matured an idea. Nominations will come from HKS alumni, faculty, and staff. HKS advisers and partners should use good judgment with regard to any potential conflict of interest.
Nominations close February 1, 2020.
