UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming response to the request for nominations from the Ed-Fi Community, the Alliance has added Partner of the Year, as an additional category to recognize the efforts, technical work and commitment to interoperability of the many technology providers and system integrators within the Ed-Fi Community. Last year we launched the first ever Community Awards, in the categories of Ambassador of the Year and Technical Contributor of the Year. These awards go to individual people or groups within the Ed-Fi Community that demonstrate an unwavering commitment to sharing the benefits of the Ed-Fi Data Standard and interoperability, both through technical contributions and by being an advocate within the larger ed tech sector.
Nominations will close on Friday, September 21 and will be voted on by the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and the Governance Advisory Team (GAT), with input from Ed-Fi staff and will be announced at the upcoming Ed-Fi Summit & Bootcamp.
