CoSN COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AWARD FOR DIGITAL EQUITY
Student access to robust digital tools is key to their success as 21st century citizens. Yet many students from economically disadvantaged families have limited access to these tools both at school and at home. Clearly, there is a great deal of work that needs to be done. Closing the gap will require a broad approach involving schools and communities working together.
All school district and educational service agency (serving multiple districts) teams are eligible for CoSN’s
Community Leadership Award for Digital Equity. Ideal teams include key district leaders such as
superintendents, CTOs, and chief curriculum leaders. Applicants are also encouraged to include local and
state partners. CoSN Board members and their institutions are ineligible for CoSN awards. The nominee
must be a CoSN member. Nominations close October 1
