2018 SIIA CODiE Awards Judges Needed

Apply to be a judge for the CODiE Awards
 

For over 30 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards have honored thousands of software, education, information and media products for achieving excellence. What makes the CODiE Awards unique is that each nominated product is thoroughly evaluated by industry experts, like you! The SIIA CODiE Awards is currently seeking educators and administrators to serve as our expert judges. Apply now to join our volunteer team!

How it Works
After completing your application and selecting your categories of expertise, you will be assigned up to five leading education products to evaluate and score between March and May. Judges review assigned products via a live online product demonstration, and score the products against a set of predetermined criteria. Each product takes approximately one hour to review and score, so expect to spend five to six hours of time to complete the evaluations. More information about the process is available on our website.

Gain access to some of the latest and greatest products the industry has to offer.
