In submitting an application for the Outstanding Technology-Using Teacher or Administrator of the Year, a scoring rubric outlines evaluation criteria which should be specifically addressed within each application.  A committee will review the applications based on these criteria.

While nominations can touch on accomplishments that occur over the course of a nominee’s career, the primary focus of the nomination should be on the work and accomplishments that occurred during the current (2016-2017) and prior (2015-2016) years.
