iEARN-USA has been named a finalist for the 7th Annual Classy Awards, honoring the most innovative nonprofits and social enterprises of 2017. Finalists were selected based on their scale and scope of the problem, an innovative approach; ability to solve the problem; and organizational effectiveness.

The Classy Awards is the largest awards ceremony of its kind recognizing excellence in social innovation. The yearlong initiative identifies and evaluates organizations addressing hundreds of social problems around the world. The winners are determined by the Classy Awards Leadership Council, an honorary board of leaders and experts whose unique perspective and valuable insight establishes this recognition as one of the highest honors in the social sector.

“The Classy Awards has become one of the top forums for recognizing global social innovation," said Pat Walsh, Co-Founder and Chief Impact Officer of Classy. "Classy Awards Finalists are pioneering innovative ideas and technologies addressing some of our greatest social problems, and we're honored to play a role in recognizing their incredible accomplishments."

Representatives from iEARN-USA will be in attendance at The Collaborative, a three-day summit and awards ceremony that brings together top social innovators from around the world. This year’s events will take place June 13-15, 2017 in Boston’s Innovation District.
