Hi! I’m Laura, the newest addition to the OpenDNS team. You can find me here on the OpenDNS blog, on our Twitter account or Facebook page or in a variety of other places helping to get the word out about OpenDNS.
Speaking of getting the word out, in the past several days, we’ve made two exciting announcements:
- We kicked off the 2010 SysAdmin of the Year Awards with six categories.
- We announced that one in every three public grade schools in the US is using OpenDNS.
As we talked about OpenDNS in schools and the incoming award nominations, a collective lightbulb went off — we should offer a way to celebrate SysAdmins who work in K-12 education, too! Today we’re adding a new category to the 2010 SysAdmin of the Year awards: a K-12 Award.
Achieving CIPA compliance, blocking unsafe and inappropriate Websites and protecting students are all in a day’s work for this SysAdmin. Tell us how this SysAdmin deftly balances the demands of school boards, educators and students without breaking a sweat. Draw inspiration from the other categories to show how this SysAdmin earned an A+.
How to nominate a SysAdmin for this or any other award: To submit yourself or a fellow SysAdmin, just email
awards at opendns dot com with the award category in the subject line. Follow the instructions for the category in your submission.
