The world is facing a full-fledged education crisis. About 80% of school-aged children do not get the basic education they need.

Here at Knewton, we believe that this is a preventable tragedy — and we’re doing everything in our power to fix it. Our mission is to provide high-quality, personalized education to every individual, everywhere.

We’re excited about our work, and we want other people to be too. Which is why we’re asking you to nominate Knewton for The Crunchies Biggest Social Impact Award.

The Crunchie Awards, co-hosted by GigaOm, VentureBeat, and TechCrunch, “recognize and celebrate the most compelling start-ups, Internet and technology innovations of the year.”

Biggest Social Impact is a brand-new award for 2011, and we’d be beyond honored to nab the first title.

Here’s what you can do:

1. Nominate Knewton for the award at this link: http://crunchies2011.techcrunch.com/nominate/?MTQ6S25ld3Rvbg==

2. Then nominate us again! You can nominate us at the link above once a day between now and the deadline of December 13th.

3. Send the link to your network of friends, family, and colleagues, explaining why they should nominate Knewton and why they should tell their network to nominate Knewton.

Thanks for your help!
