Scoop News Group is thrilled to announce the winners of the EdScoop 50 Awards.

The awards, in their first year, honor the most influential people in the higher education technology community, along with the most innovative projects that make a positive impact across universities.

Built on the model of other Scoop News Group awards — like the FedScoop 50, StateScoop 50 and CyberScoop 50 — the EdScoop 50 Awards recognize achievements between July 2021 and July 2022.

Starting in July, members of the higher education IT community nominated more than 200 leaders and projects for the awards. The EdScoop team narrowed the list to the top 80, and readers cast more than 200,000 votes to select this year's winners.

"The EdScoop 50 Awards are all about recognizing the higher education community in a new way," said Jake Williams, the vice president of content and community of StateScoop and EdScoop. "Institutions have been forever changed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and these awards recognize the class of leaders who lead that change and are charting the path forward for universities."

This year's winners represent 40 institutions, two university systems, seven private sector companies and one professional organization. From large public universities to community colleges, the awards recognize people and projects at several different sizes and geographically across the entire country.
