Awards to USA, Canada, and International individuals to recognize outstanding and creative work in social justice and change. Awards are intended for innovators who have identified a particular need and created a systemic solution for it that has made a significant impact in the field.
The nominee can be associated with a for-profit organization or a governmental entity, and, in fact, need not be associated with any organization. While it is often the case that a nominee’s innovative work is done with the support and within the framework of an organization (often founded by the nominee), the Grinnell Prize is intended to recognize an outstanding individual, not an organization. For example, a visual artist, independent of any organization, can be a social justice innovator by exposing a societal problem in a creative way, thereby affecting the perception or opinion of other individuals and resulting in societal change.
The nomination form will be used to evaluate the nominee's ability to:
The innovation aspect of the Prize is an important criterion. The College seeks individuals who are creative problem solvers. The innovation can be a product; it can be a process; it can be a novel use of old or new technology; it can create new opportunities; it can be a market-based solution; it can lead to a more sustainable or just solution to an existing problem. The Prize Selection Committee will examine whether a contribution is innovative in the context of the individual’s approach, chosen field, and geographical location.
