Think you’re doing some stellar things in Education Services? Why wonder? TSIA’s Star Award program is a great way for your education organization to be acknowledged for the star it is. The award recognizes exceptional leadership, innovation and commitment within the education services function. There are three award categories for which members of TSIA’s Education Services discipline may apply:
1) Star Award for Small Company Excellence in Education Services
2) Star Award for Innovation in Education Services
3) Star Award for Education Services Excellence in Enabling Customer Success
Participation is easy. First complete the nomination form and indicate in which of the three award categories you wish to participate. You may place a nomination for just one category, two, or all three. Upon acceptance of your nomination(s) you will receive a Star Award application for each award category specified. Each application consists of 7-8 questions along with Overview and Summary sections.
What I like about the Star Award process is that judging is conducted by members of TSIA’s Education Services discipline. So the folks who do what you do day-to-day, who understand the challenges you face and who experience the same difficulty of trying to excel in a – discount or give it away for free - environment, will review each application using pre-defined judging criteria and guidelines.
Whether participating as an applicant or a judge, I have been told by many what a valuable experience it is. Applicants receive feedback both on the clarity of the application, as well as the quality of the content – is it truly innovative, unique, exceptional? Judges have the opportunity to read about all the great things that others are doing and evaluate ideas side-by-side.
The deadline for submitting a Spring 2012 nomination is November 10. For further detail regarding the Star Award program, please see the Star Award webpage. Don’t miss this opportunity to show others how brightly you shine!!
