Announcing the winners of Outschool’s first-ever learner community design contest

For Learners Sep 22, 2020

Outschool would like to send a big THANK YOU to all of the learners who participated in our recent Design Contest for Outschool Teacher Awards.

We asked our Outschool Learner Community to design an award that other learners can share with their favorite teachers. Here’s what we told them to do:


  1. Imagine the best teacher you could ever have 😍
  2. Now design an award for that teacher 🏆  (Images could be drawn, painted, digitally name it!)
  3. Submit a video to the classroom discussion page where you explain your design 🎥

Learners who created the five best entries all receive:

  • Their illustration designed by Outschool’s design team 👩🏽‍🎨
  • Their awards displayed on the Outschool website for our favorite teachers 🏅
  • An Outschool t-shirt! 👕  Woohoo!


Today we want to congratulate and thank our 5 winners!

They already know who they are. However, we have a special surprise for them to share in this post. For the first time, they’ll get to see how Outschool’s design team used their original illustration to create a teacher award that other learners can share with their favorite teachers on Outschool!

Here are the five winning designs, with the learner’s original design on the left, and the Outschool design team’s finished award on the right. Great work learners and congratulations!
