Internet2 Issues Call for 2013 Richard Rose Award Nominees

Award recognizes individual efforts to extend advanced networking benefits to K-20 education community

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- February 20, 2013 – Internet2 today announced its call for nominations for the 2013 Richard Rose Award. The annual award, established in 2009, recognizes outstanding individual efforts aimed at extending the benefits of advanced networking to the education community. The award will be presented at the 2013 Internet2 Annual Meeting in Arlington, Virginia to be held April 21-24, 2013. Nominations are due on March 26, 2013.

Rose was the executive director of the University of Maryland Academic Telecommunications System and USM Office IT. Rose (1947–2007) played an early and influential leadership role in Internet2's K20 Initiative, whose mission is to close the digital divide by bringing together Internet2’s advanced network and research university members with innovators from the nation's colleges, primary and secondary schools, libraries, museums and other educational institutions. This partnership extends new technologies, applications and rich, interactive educational content to everyone—no matter where they’re located.

"Richard taught us how uniting heterogeneous groups around the effective use of advanced networking technologies can open the doors to new learning opportunities and improve people’s lives. His energetic and thoughtful leadership continues to inspire the Internet2 K20 community," said James Werle, director, Internet2 K20 Initiative.

The Rose Award celebrates educators or technologists who have had a demonstrable impact on the K20 community through the bringing together of diverse communities around common goals and projects, and have accumulated a record of community accomplishments. The award also presents an important opportunity to recognize the achievements of leaders across all educational sectors that are working hard to ensure that students of all ages and locations have access to the most advanced networking resources available.

The awards judging committee includes David Lassner, vice president and chief information officer, University of Hawaii and Richard Rose Award recipient; Jim Dolgonas, president and chief executive officer emeritus, CENIC and Richard Rose Award recipient; Carol Willis, manager, Texas Education Telecommunications Network and Richard Rose Award recipient; Jennifer Oxenford, web and public relations manager, Mid-Atlantic Gigapop in Philadelphia for Internet2 (MAGPI) and Richard Rose Award recipient; and Randy Stout, Research and Development Coordinator for the Kansas Board of Regents, Kan-Ed and Richard Rose Award recipient. Werle will chair this year’s awards committee.
