“The SIIA CODiE Awards have recognized more than 1,000 software and information companies for achieving excellence,” according to the SIIA CODiE website. ”The CODiE Awards remain the only peer-recognized program in the content, education, and software industries so each CODiE Award win serves as incredible market validation for a product’s innovation, vision, and overall industry impact.” We at Questia are honored to be nominated as a finalist in the Awards’ “Content” and “Education” categories. Check out the three awards that Questia is nominated for below:
