Terry O’Banion Student Technology Awards Recognize Outstanding Community College Technology Students


The League for Innovation in the Community College is accepting nominations for the 2020-2021 Terry O’Banion Student Technology Awards starting on September 1. The awards are presented to two deserving students pursuing their education and a career in technology, and given annually in honor of Terry O’Banion, League President Emeritus and Senior League Fellow. 

Award winners are designated as Student Technology Champion or Student Developer Champion. The Student Technology Champion award is presented to a student with a career interest in a technology field. The Student Developer Champion award is presented to a student with a career focus specifically in software development. Each winner will each receive $2,500 to be used toward their educational expenses (e.g., tuition, fees) and a plaque commemorating their achievement. The awards will be mailed to students and announced at the spring 2021 Innovations Conference.

Student nominations must demonstrate a passion for technology, a commitment to education and community, and financial need. Member colleges may nominate one student for each award category. Look for submission guidelines on the League’s website.
