The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) is accepting online nominations for three awards—the Withrow Award for Educators, the TEAM Award and the Excellence in Public Service Award. The awards are given annually to an individual, a school district team, and a public servant exemplifying leadership and innovation in education technology.
The Withrow Award for Educators honors a Chief Technlogy Officer/district technology leader who has been a champion for education technology in a U.S. K-12 school district or consortium of districts. The award is named for Frank Withrow, a pioneer in education technology.
The TEAM Award recognizes a team of educators who have successfully used education technologies to enhance or transform learning and achievement.
The Excellence in Public Service Award honors public services that have supported the strategic use of information technologies to improve learning.
The deadline for nomination submissions is November 30, 2007. The awards will be presented during CoSN’s 13th Annual K-12 School Networking Conference, March 9-11, 2008 in Washington, DC.
