Lingvist is delighted to have been selected as a finalist in the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Association (UNESCO) Prize for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in Education.

The competition seeks to highlight the potential of technology to enable education around the world for anyone with a connected device.

It is truly an honor to be one of eight nominees publicly recognized by the committee from among 113 of our colleagues in the education technology space.
