Miami, FL (April 11, 2024) – CoSN, a premier association of K-12 education technology leaders, honored Congresswoman Angie Craig (D-MN) with its 2024 Excellence in Public Service Award.

Each year, CoSN presents the Excellence in Public Service Award to a public servant that is making a difference and helping students have equitable access to digital learning. Past recipients include leading U.S. Senators, Governors, Congresspersons and Administration leaders, including Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chair Jessica Rosenworcel.

“Congresswoman Angie Craig’s commitment to shielding educational institutions from the relentless tide of cyber threats is vitally important to ensuring a stable and safe learning environment. Her proactive leadership lays a strong foundation for advancing educational resilience in the digital age,” said Keith Krueger, CEO, CoSN.

Congresswoman Angie Craig represents Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District. She serves on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and has been a strong champion for communities. In response to cyberattacks on Minneapolis and Rochester schools, Congresswoman Craig helped make the case that the FCC should provide cybersecurity support through the E-rate. Her voice helped convince FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel and other members of the FCC to propose a cybersecurity pilot for schools and libraries. Congresswoman Craig’s strong voice for expanding broadband access, particularly in rural and other areas with connectivity gaps, is greatly appreciated.

“It is an honor to receive the Excellence in Public Service Award — ensuring educators, school administrators and students have the tools they need to navigate 21st century life is a major area of focus for my office. Thank you for recognizing our efforts, and for continuing your incredible work to strengthen school system technology,” said Rep. Angie Craig.
