The Ed-Fi Community Awards first started in 2017 to recognize the dedication and achievements of individuals and organizations contributing to the Ed-Fi Community and our mission. In 2018 we added two additional award categories: Rookie of the Year and Partner of the Year. As our Community continues to grow it is our honor to recognize the hard work of our most dedicated and engaged Community members. In 2018 we honored the teams from INSITE, AWS, NEFEC and Scott Kuykendall of Delaware Dept. of Ed for their work to build and support the Ed-Fi Community.  If you know of an individual or an organization that has meaningfully contributed to the Ed-Fi Community, click here to nominate them today!
