CISCO CHAMPIONS 2019: Applications Now Open

October 30, 2018 - 4 Comments

Are you all about throwing in your two cents when it comes to helping people out with their tech issues? Are you up past midnight putting the finishing touches on your latest blog post or podcast? Does your home lab scare the neighbors? Do you like to get sneak peeks on yet-to-be-launched technology and products? If you answered yes to any or all of the statements, we’re pretty sure you’d make a great Cisco Champion!

We’re looking for the best and the brightest. We want tech enthusiasts who are also active members of the community. We’re searching for thought leaders who are regarded as a community influencer/technical authority via online and offline contributions in social media, third-party technical forums, communities, user groups, speaking engagements, or other venues.

If this sounds like you, then submit your application for the 2019 Cisco Champion Program. Cisco Champions are an elite group of technical experts who are passionate about IT and enjoy sharing their knowledge, expertise, and thoughts across the social web and with Cisco. The program has been running for 5 years and is just getting started!

Don’t take our word for it, here are a few Cisco Champions discussing the benefits of the program at CLUS this year.

We invite you to apply the 2019 Cisco Champions program. The application form will be open from October 30th  – November 12 19th, 2018. 

Fill out the application to be a 2019 Cisco Champion.

*Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and cannot be a government official or Cisco employee.
