Educating Youth for Responsible Global Digital Citizenship is the theme of the 2011 UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education. Funded by the Kingdom of Bahrain, the US$50,000 Prize is divided equally between two winners. The deadline for submission of nominations is 16 April 2012.
Every year, this Prize rewards individuals, institutions or non-governmental organizations for projects and activities that demonstrate best practice as well as creative use of ICTs to enhance learning, teaching and overall educational performance.

Submissions of nominations must reach UNESCO via the governments of Member States, in consultation with their National Commissions for UNESCO, or via international non-governmental organizations that maintain formal relations with the Organization.

The two prizewinners will be selected by the Director-General of UNESCO on the basis of recommendations made to her by an international jury that consists of five independent members of different nationalities. Winners will be celebrated at an award ceremony on 16 May 2012 at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

The 2010 Prize was awarded to the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (United Kingdom) and Infocentro Foundation (Venezuela) for their projects aimed at increasing digital literacy of adults.

By proposing the theme, Educating Youth for Responsible Global Digital Citizenship, for the current edition of the Prize, UNESCO would like to stress the right to education for all as the foundation for building a global human community sharing the same ideals and values of coexistence, equality, peace and tolerance.
