Unlike many other awards in the edtech marketplace, Balefire Labs does not require an entry fee for the "Best EdApp" award competition. Instead, every app that is reviewed at Balefire Labs is considered for the award. "We feel that requiring an entry fee is inconsistent with our values," says Mahon. "We think every app should have the opportunity to be recognized for its excellence, not just the ones created by developers who can afford an entry fee."

Developers of the winning apps will be offered Balefire Labs' "Best EdApp 2014" badge to use in their marketing efforts.
