Khan Academy India talent search 2017

We’re seeking brilliant explainers whose videos help students succeed in school and find joy in learning.
This year, the talent search is open to entries in five languages: English, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, and Marathi. Each language will have one winner and one runner-up receiving a prize of INR 75,000 and INR 25,000 respectively. All winners will be considered for longer-term video creation contracts and will also have their video published on Khan Academy.
We're searching for amazing explainers to build the world’s most comprehensive, engaging library of videos. A critical aspect of this is to make our content deeply relevant to the learners in India who prefer learning in their mother tongue.
We’re inspired by students who tell us that our videos gave them the confidence and knowledge to complete their homework, ace their test, or make sense of a tricky concept they had thought was out of reach.
If you have a passion for teaching and a knack for making challenging concepts seem simple, send us your educational video in one of the following subjects today in English, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi or Tamil.
  • Mathematics (Std 6-12 level)
  • Physics (Std 9-12 level)
  • Chemistry (Std 9-12 level)
  • Biology (Std 9-12 level)
Creators choosing to create the video in any of the Indian languages are recommended to use English for the technical terms of the subject to make the video accessible to a wider audience.
  • Who? We’re seeking educational video submissions from Indian residents who are 18 years or older. If you have a passion for teaching and a knack for making challenging concepts seem simple, we want to hear from you!
  • What? Submit an educational video in one of the 4 subjects listed above by Dec 17th. Within each subject, we have recommended a few topics that you may want to cover - see our recommended list of topics.
  • How? To help you create your best submission, we’ve shared judging criteria and guidelines in the FAQ . The core idea: We’re looking for videos that cover concepts deeply and rigorously, feel conversational, and are laser-focused on helping a student who needs to learn a concept for tomorrow’s test, to complete their homework, or to ensure they understand what they learned in class.
