The Community Spotlight Awards recognize members of the Cisco Learning Network, who demonstrate leadership and commitment to peers by making a significant contribution of time and expertise within the community.
Community Spotlight Awards highlight and extend appreciation to those community members whose efforts help make Cisco’s online communities the premier destination for Cisco enthusiasts. Awards categories may differ slightly among communities.
All registered community members—except for Cisco Designated VIPs—are eligible for Community Spotlight Awards.
The Cisco Learning Network will award three (3) key Community Spotlight Awards:
The Technical Excellence Award for contributing valuable online technical content. Recipients will be determined by Cisco Learning Network Community Managers and business staff.
The Member's Choice Award goes to an individual specifically nominated by other community members for their positive impact. Recipients will be determined from the list of nominees as submitted by fellow community members via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rookie Award goes to an active new Cisco Learning Network member with a positive influence on the community with their support or content contributions. Recipients will be determined by Cisco Learning Network Community Managers and business staff.
Contributed content may include submitted videos, documents, detailed responses to questions in discussion threads that help the community prepare for and pass their Cisco professional certifications, and other such contributions.
Most Community Spotlight Awards are active for one quarter (approximately three months). However, spans may vary by award and community.
Community Spotlight Award recipients will be highlighted and recognized throughout their community. They will also receive an electronic "badge" placed next to their username to announce the achievement.
