CUE Awards have long been a powerful way to recognize members who go above and beyond.

This year, the CUE staff, Awards Committee, and Affiliate Boards are working closer than ever

to shine a light on influencers throughout the states of California and Nevada.

Affiliates, on November 5th, your local affiliate award winners will see a link to submit their details to be eligible for the overall CUE award for either Outstanding Teacher of the Year, Emerging Teacher of the Year, Site Leader of the Year, or Technology Leader of the Year.

Nominate for a Gold Disk award to celebrate a CUE member’s long-term commitment to CUE, our affiliates, and technology in learning.

If you have suggestions for Making IT Happen, Legislator of the Year, Advocate of the Year, or Platinum Disk, please email awards@cue.org. These four awards are determined by the CUE Board, Awards Committee, and staff.
