PESC Annual Best Practices Competition recognizes, highlights and promotes innovation and ingenuity in the application and implementation of interoperable data standards for business needs. The Annual Best Competition is open to institutions (schools, colleges, universities), associations, organizations, government agencies and departments, districts, consortia, nonprofit and commercial service providers and other education stakeholders that have collaborated to design and/or adopt an electronic standardization initiative (e.g. published articles, white papers, pilots, demonstrations and implementations).

Hub provides an overview of the GDN Digital Learner Data Ecosystem in an online searchable map. Where the Signatories, including credential depositories, are located is displayed, along with how to contact them for more information
