The ASEF ClassNet Awards encourage and reward innovative, effective and sustainable School Collaborations. The Awards fall under the two categories:
- Gold Awards
- Merit Awards
Presented at the ASEF ClassNet Conference, the Gold and Merit Award winners each receive a cash prize of EUR 2,000 and EUR 500 respectively. This prize is to be used either to develop further their existing School Collaboration, or as a seed to create new School Collaborations in future years. Award Winners will also be given the opportunity to present their School Collaboration to their peers at the ASEF ClassNet Conference.
The criteria used to assess the ASEF ClassNet School Collaborations are the degree to which they enhance:
- intercultural understanding
- knowledge-sharing between students and teachers in Asia and Europe
- use of ICT
