District leaders need to stay current on a wide range of issues and topics… and given their busy schedules this is often a challenge.
We’re lucky to work with a lot of exceptional leaders and districts, and every year we recognize several of them with our annual awards. Awards are given to individuals and teams who demonstrate outstanding vision in K-12 education technology. If you know a great leader, be sure to nominate him or her for the Withrow CTO Award or the Team Award. Self-nominations are also encouraged.
All award winners are recognized at CoSN’s Annual Conference and receive complimentary conference registrations, honoraria, and media coverage.
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.
The Team Award honors a district leadership team for its transformative impact on ed tech and its work to improve student learning.
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.
The Private Sector Champion award honors an individual from the private sector for outstanding service to the education technology community.
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.
