Check the details for attending and supporting the event.
Each year, the Innovative Learning Awards brings together educators; technology, business, and media leaders; and CFY supporters to celebrate the year’s accomplishments and to recognize excellence and innovation in education. This year is extra special as they celebrate the impressive achievement of 15 years of helping students, teachers, and parents use digital learning to improve educational outcomes.
