Many Nobel Laureates say that a certain teacher challenged or encouraged them, and that the experience was crucial to the choices they made in life. By reaching out to teachers, we see a great opportunity to contribute to positive change in the spirit of the Nobel Prize.

Because teachers really impact lives.
