From today, 20 schools from all over Germany and the German Schools Abroad network can hope to win the German School Prize 2022. A jury of 50 people from the fields of education, School Practice and School Administration selected the schools from more than 80 applications. The motto of this year’s contest is “Improving Lessons”.
In the coming weeks, the TOP 20 schools will be evaluated by jury teams. On the spot, the experts exchange with the teachers, the pupils and the parents, visit the teaching units and the projects. After the school visits, the selection committee will nominate up to 15 schools for the German School Award 2022 at the beginning of July.
The nominated schools will take part in the award ceremony together with Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Berlin on September 28, 2022. Then it is decided who will receive the coveted prizes. The first prize is endowed with 100,000 euros, the other four prizes with 30,000 euros each.
All non-winning nominated schools will receive a recognition prize of 5,000 euros.
The German School Prize
The Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH has been awarding the German School Prize since 2006 in collaboration with the Heidehof Foundation. It is the most well-known, demanding and valuable award for good schools in the country. The cooperation partners are ARD and the publishing group ZEIT.
About 2,500 schools have applied for the award since the program was launched. To designate the winners, the jury evaluates six quality areas: “Quality of teaching”, “Achievement”, “Dealing with diversity”, “Responsibility”, “School climate, school life and extracurricular partners” and “The ‘school as an institution of learning’. The emphasis this year is on the area of “educational quality”. These characteristics are now generally recognized as indicators of good school quality.
The concepts of the award-winning schools are then evaluated, processed and finally made available to all schools via further education, publications and the online platform “The German School Portal”. A cycle in which good school practices are reinforced and disseminated.
