collaboration-nationCollaboration Nation, a new awards program from CDW-G and eSchool News, will recognize the nation’s finest examples of collaboration and successful educational technology projects.

CDW-G will share the winning school and district’s keys to success and will award that school or district a grand prize of $50,000 to spend with CDW-G on products and services from partners such as HP, Lenovo and Meraki.

“Education is in the digital age, and technology is no longer a luxury, but a critical learning tool,” said Geoff Fletcher, education industry expert and a Collaboration Nation judge. “More than ever, the long-term success of technology-driven projects requires that we bring together all departments – IT, curriculum, instruction and administration – and Collaboration Nation will recognize the schools and districts that have put in the hard work to make this happen.”
