Amazon Web Services announces the call for entries for the AWS 2017 City on a Cloud Innovation Challenge (opens in new tab), a global program to recognize schools or districts, local or regional governments, and technology partners that are innovating for the benefit of students and citizens using the AWS Cloud. Up to $50,000 in AWS promotional credits will be claimed by the winning school or district.
Schools or districts can compete in three categories:
Best Practices - Have you deployed an innovative solution with a proven track record of success? Submit for the Best Practices Award so you can take your project to the next level.
Dream Big - Have a great idea but need help getting started? Submit your idea, plan for implementation, and how your students, teachers, or operations will benefit.
Partners in Innovation - Are you a partner or educational technology company working with schools and districts? Share how you impact student success for K-12 and primary learners worldwide.
The 2017 City on a Cloud recipients will be announced at the AWS Public Sector Summit (opens in new tab), June 12-14, 2017 in Washington D.C. The deadline for applications is May 12, 2017.
