Please join us in welcoming the July MVP Awardees!


side 21

Today 1,085 technical community leaders around the world received an email announcing they’ve received the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award. Congratulations to all!

Over the past year, they’ve demonstrated their deep commitment to helping others make the most of their technology, voluntarily sharing their passion and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products. The MVP Award is Microsoft’s way of acknowledging and supporting their outstanding contributions to the community.

Whether it’s through blogs or books, speaking engagements or Microsoft Channel 9 videos, user groups or forum participation, MVPs help an average one million Microsoft customers every day.

MVPs are recognized each quarter in one or multiple award categories for this annual award, which reflect the cross-team approach of Microsoft product groups. This quarter 29 MVPs were recognized in two award categories, including two MVPs who are new to the program.

Of the millions of people who contribute to technical communities each year, only about 4,000 are named Microsoft MVPs. They are nominated by Microsoft team members, other community individuals, or in some cases themselves. Candidates are rigorously evaluated for their technical expertise, community leadership, and voluntary community contributions for the previous year. They reflect Microsoft’s global community, today coming from more than 90 countries and speaking more than 40 different languages.

Please join us in congratulating the new MVPs, and welcoming back the renewed MVPs. We are very excited to recognize your amazing accomplishments!

And if you know (or are!) an awesome community leader, go here to make a nomination.
