The ITIP Ohio IGNITE Award recognizes educators who use technology to help "ignite the fire" in teachers or students.  One IGNITE Award will be given away each year to the educator that does just that...IGNITES the fire...SPARKS creativity...and EXCITES learners to think outside the box through meaningful educational technology integration.  

The award is open to all K-12 educators (administrators, specialists and classroom teachers) and is connected to the ISTE Making it Happen Award, which provides national recognition of educational technology leaders.  The ITIP Ohio IGNITE Award will be presented at the Ohio Educational Technology Conference (OETC) in Columbus in February.

While nominations can touch on accomplishments that occur over the course of a nominee’s career, the primary focus of the nomination should be on the work and accomplishments that occurred during the current and prior school year.  

*Nominations are due December 8, 2023
