SDCUE is proud to co-sponsor the Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) Awards. This year's ceremony takes place on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Ultra Star Cinemas, Mission Valley. Each winning teacher will receive one year’s membership to CUE and SDCUE as well as free attendance to the SDCUE Tech Fair on Saturday, November 8, 2015 at La Costa Canyon High School.

In addition, SDCUE will sponsor the first annual “Bill Simpson Award” for one student who has demonstrated deep learning and appreciation for the video production process when creating their iVIE entry. Bill Simpson was the co-founder of the iVIE awards in 2001, an active SDCUE member, and devoted much of his life to promoting the use of technology for students throughout San Diego County. He believed that video production in the classroom was an effective way for students to learn content. Bill passed away this last August and we are delighted to honor the memory of our friend and colleague in this way.
