Selection Process
A screening committee composed of a small and diverse group of individuals in the MIT Media Lab network of activists, scientists, designers, and engineers will review the nominations and select the award recipient.

There are two ways you can participate in this process: by nominating a person or group, or through enlisting your social circle in the process. We’ll reward you for both actions, since they are both crucial:
1. If you are the first person to make the nomination of the Disobedience Award winner, we will fly you to Boston to attend the award ceremony on July 21 at the MIT Media Lab.
2. If you recruit others to make nominations, and one of them is the first person to nominate the Disobedience Award winner, we will also fly you to attend the award ceremony in July.

We will be accepting nominations from March 6 to May 1 (eight weeks), and plan to announce the recipient at our summer event on July 21, 2017. We will announce a shortlist of nominees prior to the event.
