2 Tracks, 20 Categories

We invite you to submit your best work for this prestigious contest. The McKnight’s Excellence in Technology program is expanding to two tracks; one for skilled care and one for senior living. Each track offers 10 categories!

A national panel of experts will ensure that your submissions are judged fairly and independently, and with the authority and respect they deserve.

But the only way to get your hands on an award is to impress the judges with the quality of your organization’s work. Enter Now!
