Speak Up Family and Friends: CoSN's Awards & Recognitions are open for nominations!

Calling all edtech leaders! Our friends at CoSN are accepting nominations for their 2016 awards through this Friday, November 20, 2015. Awards are given to individuals and teams who demonstrate outstanding vision in K-12 education technology. Feel free to nominate yourself or any great leaders you know! All award winners will be recognized at CoSN's Annual Conference and will receive complimentary conference registrations, honoraria, and media coverage.

CoSN is accepting nominations for the following awards:

Withrow CTO Award
This award recognizes an exceptional district CTO who serves as a technology champion and whose leadership has been transformative for his or her school system.

Team Award
The Team Award honors a district leadership team for its transformative impact on ed tech and its work to improve student learning.

Award for Excellence in Public Service
This award recognizes an elected or appointed official for his or her achievements in advocacy and policy to promote the use of K-12 education technology. In some years, a similar award, the Partnerships that Matter Award, is given to an organization (rather than an individual) which has been a public service champion.

Kathy Hurley Private Sector Champion
The Private Sector Champion award honors an individual from the private sector for outstanding service to the education technology community.

Volunteer of the Year Award
This award honors a volunteer who has provided exemplary support to CoSN in a volunteer capacity, including on our committees or state chapters. We also honor several of our volunteers with induction into the CoSN Volunteer Hall of Fame.

OTHER RECOGNITION
CoSN sometimes recognizes members outside the structure of our formal awards program. Current recognition opportunities include:

NextGeneration Leaders Program
CoSN created the NextGeneration Leaders program in the fall of 2015 to recognize and support emerging leaders in education technology. If you have been in the industry for no more than 5 years, this is the program for you!
