Entry Form   |   ComputED Gazette


          The ComputED Gazette is now accepting entries for its 24th Annual Best Educational Software Awards. The BESSIES has had the distinction of previously being co-sponsored by the CBS-affiliate in San Diego (KFMB-TV/Channel 8), and recognizes innovative, content-rich programs, apps and websites (Windows, Android and iPad/iOS platforms) that foster educational excellence. Previous award winners are eligible to participate, and there is no restriction on publication date. The deadline for receipt of entries is Friday, February 16, 2018.

         Winners receive a digital
BESSIES logo for promotional use, and up to ten winning entries will be selected by our staff writers for inclusion in our expanded Reviews and Showcase sections. Results are published on our website and announced electronically to the media and to subscribers at educational newsgroups on the Internet. A list of last year's winners is available.
