Announcing the 2020 awards

The NTEN community is filled with individuals eager to share, collaborate, and support each other. It’s part of what makes this community so unique. And each year, we highlight three individuals and organizations that are genuinely living NTEN’s values and caring for the community — and our world — in remarkable ways.

Thank you to this year’s award sponsor, OpenTent, who would have joined us on the stage at 20NTC to help us celebrate the awardees.
