“We’re delighted to be named an award finalist in this category,” said Sohit Wadhwa, CEO and co-founder. “With the majority of schools rapidly moving to extended remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, parent engagement and action is more important than ever.”
Wadhwa continued, “We’re honored to support K-12 educators who are currently working hard to connect with parents and make it all work.”
Acknowledged as the premier awards program for the software and information industries for 35 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media and digital content industries. ParentSquare was honored as one of four finalists in their category.
“We are thrilled to unveil the 2020 CODIE Award finalists, the best in education technology,” said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. “These exciting innovations are setting the pace to improve outcomes in education for students, educators, and administrators.”
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education 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.
Education Technology category winners will be announced during an online winner announcement celebration on May 19, 2020.
