Paper was named winner of the inaugural 2021 Supes' Choice Awards in the "Innovator of the Year" category by the Institute for Education Innovation (IEI), an organization that serves as the bridge between district leaders and organizations to support the greatest challenges in K-12 education.


Paper was selected by a panel of esteemed superintendent judges from across the nation
and was assessed based on our commitment to student outcomes, innovation, and ingenuity, client support, interactivity, and engagement. The Supes’ Choice Awards are the only industry awards judged exclusively by school district superintendents.


“We are honored to be recognized by the Supes’ Choice Awards as the inaugural winner of "Innovator of the Year" for our commitment to leveling the playing field for all students,” said Phil Cutler, founder and CEO of Paper. “This recognition by district leaders serves as a testament to our unwavering dedication, focus, and ingenuity in supporting the students we serve by providing them with anytime, anywhere academic support.”


“At IEI, we are committed to improving students’ outcomes and supporting effective, sustainable
solutions to age-old problems in education,” said Doug Roberts, founder and CEO, Institute for Education Innovation. “The Supes’ Choice Awards provide a very unique opportunity for companies to
not only get their products and solutions in front of district decision-makers, but to also pursue
recognition for their work with a prestigious, new industry award.”


Recipients of the Supes’ Choice Award were recognized at a hybrid gala held on December 9, 2021,
where the judges gathered in New York City and the event was live-streamed for all award applicants.
Along with the designation of being the winner, companies were provided with written and verbal

valuable experience with Supes’ Choice.
