Expired: The MIT Media Lab Disobedience Award 2017

The MIT Media Lab Disobedience Award 2017
The MIT Media Lab Disobedience Award seeks to highlight effective, responsible, ethical disobedience across disciplines, and around the world. Disobedience Award objectives are to build awareness and support of disobedience-robust work being done, and to promote role models for younger people.
Eligibility requirements for the $250,000 prize
The recipient must be living.
The recipient must have taken a personal risk in order to affect positive change for greater society.
Both individuals and groups are eligible to win the prize.

Selection Process
A screening committee composed of a small and diverse group of individuals in the MIT Media Lab network of activists, scientists, designers, and engineers will review the nominations and select the award recipient.

There are two ways you can participate in this process: by nominating a person or group, or through enlisting your social circle in the process. We’ll reward you for both actions, since they are both crucial:
1. If you are the first person to make the nomination of the Disobedience Award winner, we will fly you to Boston to attend the award ceremony on July 21 at the MIT Media Lab.
2. If you recruit others to make nominations, and one of them is the first person to nominate the Disobedience Award winner, we will also fly you to attend the award ceremony in July.

We will be accepting nominations from March 6 to May 1 (eight weeks), and plan to announce the recipient at our summer event on July 21, 2017. We will announce a shortlist of nominees prior to the event.
Awards:- $250,000
