IT Superhero Awards Goes Above and Beyond


At Connection, we believe in celebrating the unsung heroes of IT who go above and beyond to keep their teams supported, productive, and secure. This year, we are taking our IT Superhero Awards to new heights by not only recognizing the unsung heroes of IT but also giving them the chance to give back to the community.

In its 4th year, the IT Superhero Awards continue to recognize excellence in IT professionals across five categories:

  • Best Team Leader—Leads to success, inspires others to greatness
  • Best Rookie—A fresh IT pro who performs like a seasoned pro
  • Best Catch—Made an amazing save, big or small, that averted disaster
  • Best Superpower—Capable of performing astonishing feats, no matter the deadline
  • Most Unshakeable—Always calm, patient, and focused in the face of IT chaos

These awards honor individuals who excel in guiding teams, making crucial saves, displaying exceptional skills, and maintaining composure under pressure. The grand prize winner, chosen from the five category winners, is crowned the Ultimate IT Superhero.

Our team understands the importance of giving back—which is why we are excited to announce the winners of the 2024 IT Superheroes Awards will have the opportunity to support an amazing group of non-profit organizations. On behalf of our winners, Connection will donate a total of $9,000 to organizations that closely align with our Connection Cares initiatives and company values.

We have carefully selected three non-profits to participate in this year’s IT Superhero Awards—Feeding America, NPower, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT)—because they share our commitment to making a positive impact in our communities. Feeding America’s mission to fight hunger and food insecurity resonates deeply with us. Connection Cares has collaborated with Feeding America and similar organizations in the past, organizing food drives and donations to support those in need. NPower holds a special significance for many at Connection, due to their contributions to the veteran community. As a Gold NH Veteran-Friendly Business, Connection is proud to work alongside NPower to support veterans and their transition into civilian life. NCWIT’s efforts to increase the representation of women in technology are incredibly important to our entire team—for the supportive work environment and culture we are proud to have built today to the skills and resources we are investing in for future generations. We believe in fostering diversity and inclusion in the tech industry to drive innovation, and supporting NCWIT’s mission aligns perfectly with our commitment to gender equality and empowerment in the workplace.

Nominations for the 2024 IT Superhero Awards are now open, and we encourage you to nominate the IT professionals in your organization who go above and beyond every day. Winners and the non-profit organization they choose to donate to will be announced at our Technology Summit in Boston, MA on September 12, 2024. Be sure to submit your nomination before June 28, 2024 to recognize deserving IT Superheroes and help support Feeding America, NPower, and NCWIT!
