The Sora reading app team is thrilled to announce that Sora has been selected as a winner in the inaugural Excellence in Equity Awards program, presented by the American Consortium for Equity in Education. The award was presented in the category Best Literacy Solution. 

The American Consortium for Equity in Education has selected education industry companies, products, and leaders as 2022 award winners in 16 categories. This competitive awards program honoring schools, educators, and industry received more than 160 total nominations from across the U.S., plus a number of submissions from abroad. There were 30 winners selected across 16 industry categories, plus 21 winners selected in 10 categories dedicated to educators and schools.  

The Excellence in Equity Awards were created to acknowledge, spotlight and celebrate high-impact work across K-12 education, as well as expand and enhance the discussion around educational equity.  After the judges’ review, the winning nominees were selected based on outstanding achievement in supporting equitable opportunity and outcomes for all educators and learners.  

“Educators and industry are on the same team, dedicated to the same mission of ensuring equitable opportunity for all learners. The overwhelming interest from all stakeholders in our inaugural awards program proves that sentiment to be true,” said Ross Romano, Program Chair of the Excellence in Equity Awards and Strategic Advisor to the American Consortium for Equity in Education. “It’s my honor to announce the 2022 Excellence in Equity Award winners and spotlight the stories of these companies and leaders improving student and educator outcomes in schools everywhere.”
