PBLWorks is Taking Nominations for its 2021 PBL Champion Awards
School, district and individual winners will be announced at the virtual PBL World conference this summer
Novato, CA (April 8, 2021) – PBLWorks, the leading provider of professional development for Project Based Learning (PBL), is accepting nominations of schools, districts and individuals for its 2021 PBL Champion Awards. The annual awards program recognizes a school, district and an individual for demonstrating a commitment to Project Based Learning that has had a positive impact on students.
This is the first year PBLWorks has solicited nominations from the public for the award. The winners will be recognized at its PBL World conference which takes place online June 21-24, 2021.
“We started the PBL Champion Awards years ago, because we wanted a way to recognize those who are making a difference with Project Based Learning,” said Bob Lenz, CEO of PBLWorks. “Often, the people who have the best insight about this are those who are actually in these schools and communities where PBL is happening. So this year, in the true spirit of collaboration and learning, we have opened the nomination process to the public. We’re looking forward to hearing your stories as we look to select our next PBL Champions!”
The PBL Champions will have the opportunity to share their story during the keynote sessions at PBL World. They will also receive complimentary registration for a 3-day PBL workshop of their choice during PBL World.

Recipients will be selected by May 15, 2021.
