The ten winning innovations make a positive impact on education at pre-university level.

“We are proud of the innovations presented today and their success in reaching the final stage, so that they can be recognised by people around the world. Every unique practice that can help children progress and thrive, however simple, is an innovation,” said Sheikha Noof Ahmed Al Thani, Executive Director of Strategic Initiatives and Partnerships at QF's Pre-University Education. “We will continue to support educators and their innovations through our ongoing partnership with HundrED, and we invite everyone to apply and participate in the next editions of this initiative,” she added.

Established in 2019, Qatar Spotlight is a partnership between QF and HundrED, a global mission-driven organization specialised in education innovation, encourages local and global K-12 education entities and initiatives to submit their educational innovations and recognises the leading ones in the industry.
“At HundrED, we find it a privilege to be able to work today and in the future with Qatar's education system,” said Executive Director of HundrED, Lasse Leponiemi.
