Finalists represent the most innovative and impactful applications and products from educational software developers, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

This year's program features 32 education technology categories, several of which are new or updated to reflect the latest industry trends. Winners will be announced during this year’s CODiE Award Celebration at the Ed Tech Industry Summit & CODiE Awards in San Francisco on June 11.
