Top 50 announcement

We’re thrilled to introduce you to the top 50 finalists of the US $1 million Global Teacher Prize 2023, in partnership with UNESCO & Dubai Cares.

These teachers have been selected from over 7,000 nominations and applications from 130 countries around the world.

Let’s join together and shine a light on the tireless work and dedication of these 50 inspiring educators.

They each deserve their moment in the spotlight.

Together, we are strongest when we stand united, and loudest when we speak together. By talking about education, you can help ensure the world doesn't forget the United Nation's sustainable development goal promising every child a good education by 2030.

Stefania Giannini, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education, said:

“I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to all the finalists. UNESCO is a proud partner of the Global Teacher Prize, because teachers deserve our great recognition. They inspire and prepare children and youth to navigate a rapidly evolving world. Their efforts play a leading role in transforming education for the future.”

His Excellency, Dr. Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer and Vice-Chairman of Dubai Cares, said:

“Congratulations to the teachers who have secured a place in the Top 50 list of the prestigious Global Teacher Prize. Teachers are the driving force behind progress, inspiring and shaping the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. In addition to imparting knowledge, the role of teachers needs to be redefined as coaches, mentors, and facilitators who can empower their students to achieve their full potential by instilling in their students the values, skills, knowledge, and experiences they need to contribute solutions to the global challenges facing humanity and thrive in our ever-changing world. We value our long-standing partnership with the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize, which celebrates the tireless efforts and incredible accomplishments of teachers around the world and their role in driving human development."
