2021 CODiE Awards Recognize Companies’ Response to COVID-19

SIIA awards 37 companies that went above and beyond throughout the COVID-19 pandemic

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 5, 2021) – In celebration of the 36th annual SIIA CODiE Awards, the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) announces 37 companies, products and people that have gone the extra mile in response to COVID-19. Winners will be announced during the virtual CODiE Award winner announcement celebrations on June 22 and June 23, 2021.

The finalists, selected by teams of expert judges, represent the most impactful initiatives from software, content, media, financial information and educational technology companies.

“This year, these leaders helped our nation respond to the historic pandemic, literally enabling the continuity of our education system and the very survival of businesses, large and small,” said Jeff Joseph, SIIA President.  “Congratulations to this year’s finalists for demonstrating the vitality, resilience and importance of business-to-business and education technology.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators, administrators and Ed Tech leaders serve as judges for the first-round review of all nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists and account for 80% of the overall score. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners. Details about each finalist are listed at https://history.siia.net/codie/2021-Finalists
