These individuals, recipients of the annual NTEN Award, are the people working hard to move NTEN's mission forward from within the community: always ready to share a case study, idea, or contact.

We call you "rockstars" here on this blog (a lot), but each spring, at NTEN's annual conference, we like to do more than that. We like to annoint a new crop of these nonprofit tech warriors.
