It is time again for the TechNet Canada Innovation Awards. This is a really great program that was started a few years back by our IT Professional Team. The concept is simple -> the community nominates teams and individuals for their great work. A team of judges narrows the field and then you the community help select the winners by voting. The winners are announced at EnergizeIT. Oh ya - we also shower the winners with prizes and donations to charity!
To quote the official site:
"The TechNet Canada Innovation Award is awarded to a Canadian IT Professional who has used Microsoft-based technology to make a positive contribution to their organization or community. The top 5 candidates have been selected from the many notable nominees."
As one of the judges, I can tell you that the quality of the submissions was very high this year. You can check out the finalists, get all the details and VOTE here. (By the way - we also have a Developer focused award called the MSDN Code Awards)
