Join us as we review our BraveIT Award nominees and award the nominees with the most votes from our public contest. Voting closes on September 15, 2021.
Each year, TierPoint’s BraveIT Award recognizes industry leaders and organizations that exemplify the unique blend of leadership, innovation, commitment, and courage required to succeed in today’s challenging technology environment. Winners for the BraveIT Awards are chosen based on online voting, promoted via social media and email. For 2021, the organization with the most votes will become our grand prize winner and earn a donation of $10,000. Second and third place winners will each receive $5,000, and all participating nominees will receive an upfront $2,000 donation from TierPoint.
BraveIT 2021 highlights eight deserving nominees across the United States that work with IT leaders and educators making a difference in their communities. Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs help innovative minds to create, imagine, and excel - and as the employment landscape evolves, our future workforce is dependent on STEM education. This year’s BraveIT Award initiative shines a light on organizations dedicated to closing the IT skills gap and helping students innovate and create a bright and brave future for generations to come.

3. Girls Who Code
