Maricopa Community Colleges and the League for Innovation in the Community College co-sponsor the Maricopa Innovation of the Year Awards Program. This program provides an opportunity for all employees to showcase innovations they have designed and implemented that positively impact the education of students. The Innovation of the Year Award is designed to recognize and acknowledge these employees, their innovative programs and projects, and their commitment to excellence in education through innovation.
We hope that all Maricopa Community Colleges employees will take time to reflect on their projects and achievements over the past year, and consider sharing them in the annual Innovation of the Year Awards Program.
Take a few moments to review the information below, which outlines the eligibility requirements, submission procedures, and award criteria. Please check with your site’s Innovation Liaison regarding internal due dates.
