TEDxAmsterdamED 2016 Award Ceremony

The call for applications for the first annual TEDxAmsterdamED Award was answered by over 90 applicants! From these, 15 were invited to join the Award Pitch day on April 1st, where they first received further training to improve their pitches and then presented them to a panel of judges. From this incredible bunch, three ideas were chosen to present at the main event on April 20th - Daniel Haven from ProctorExam, Nathalie Lecina from Studio Moio and Michel Visser from Konnektid.com. The Award Ceremony was hosted by Drew Wackerling and the winner chosen by an online vote from the audience, watching live or via the livestream. Nathalie Lecina, engaging demotivated students and drop-outs to come up with innovative solutions to social problems, was this year’s winner! She garnered support for Studio Moio from both the audience on the day, and TEDxAmsterdamED partners thereafter, to help her develop and grow the program further. Congratulations Nathalie!
