Supes Choice Awards

What Is Supes' Choice?

Welcome to the inaugural Supes’ Choice Awards—the only education industry award judged exclusively by school district superintendents!

Our mission is to bring together the people and organizations who are committed to seeing students succeed in school and life while creating a safe space for constructive problem solving and innovative thinking. The Supes’ Choice Awards provide a unique opportunity for education companies to receive recognition from their district partners as well as coveted feedback from district leaders about their products.

At IEI, we think it is really important that district leaders be positioned centrally in the discussion about which service and solution providers can best meet the needs of students and teachers, and the Supes’ Choice Awards are our effort to do just that. We received numerous applications from companies demonstrating an impressive commitment to improving student outcomes. This award spotlights the successes—and acknowledges the impactful work—these companies have done to help students succeed both inside and outside of the classroom.

Superintendents from across the nation will evaluate education products that are solving the most challenging problems facing K-12 education today.
