In January 2020, Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched the Amazon Alexa EdTech Skills Challenge, to challenge EMEA-based edtechs to use Alexa to transform education. With six finalists remaining, the event is now virtual and the public can vote for their favourite.

The finalists invited to compete in a digital event this July are: Ambiently, Classlife Education, Levooba, Little Bridge, My School Portal, and ZenTeach. Each developed a skill designed to positively impact challenges such as how to improve teaching practices, learning throughout life, continuing professional development, and administration and assessment processes.

The judges’ choice will receive $50,000 in AWS Promotional Credit, and the people’s choice will receive $25,000 in AWS Promotional Credit. All other final contestants will receive $10,000 in AWS Promotional Credit.

Whether you are an EMEA-based student, parent, educator, builder or education technology employee, vote for the Alexa Skill you find most impactful. Public voting is open until 25 July 2020. Find out more about the challenge, view all the skill demos, and cast your vote now.
