What to Expect as a Judge

CODiE Awards judges represent education and business technology leaders looking to learn more about top technology products and leadership within the industry. Judges include teachers and administrators in ed tech categories and executives, product leaders, tech engineers, investors, and consultants in business technology categories.


Before applying, read our terms & conditions for judges. We encourage you to select the top categories you feel most qualified and most interested in reviewing.


Note: some categories receive over 100 applications so we cannot always assign all qualified/ approved judges products. Priority is given to past judges with outstanding feedback, and to those who apply first.

You will receive a confirmation email as soon as your application is received. You will be notified as soon as the application has been reviewed, usually within a few days. If you don’t receive this email, please check your spam filters and safelist

Product assignments will be sent to judges the week of February 7, 2022. Please review your product assignments in the judge dashboard as soon as they are received and notify the Awards Director if you see any conflicts of interest or are no longer able to participate.

You will be expected to evaluate up to five (5) products in any one of your preferred categories. All demos are conducted virtually and take approximately 45-minutes to 1-hour per product to review. Budget 6 hours of time for judging between reviewing demos and completing the evaluation.

First round review

As an approved judge you'll review up to five leading edge business or education technology products via online demo between February 7-April 8, 2022.


Product demonstrations are arranged directly with each nominee. Nominees will reach out beginning February 7, 2022 to schedule a live demo time with you (you may reach out to them with your availability too). Notify the awards director if you don't hear from the nominees within one week.


After completing the product review, you'll be asked to complete a scoring rubric using category-specific criteria.

Note that in 2022 we are also offering leadership categories! If you prefer to review entries in the leadership categories you will complete the review based of the nomination information. No live demo is necessary.



• Review the judging criteria and the nomination information as soon as you receive your assignments.
• Demos are to be scheduled by March 4.
• Demos may be conducted independently or with both judges.
• Remember: you are comparing each product to the criteria provided, and not against each other.
• Complete your scores immediately after reviewing each product so the information is fresh. Scoring usually takes about 10-20 minutes per product.
• You may return to the judge dashboard to revise your scores at any point up to Friday, April 8, 2022.


Second Round review

New in 2022, first round reviewers will be invited to participate in the second round review April 25. This allows judges to see all products in the category and voice their picks alongside SIIA members.
