No Adobe CC this year?

The VKOP is out and no Adobe this time around. That is disappointing, they didn’t really give it a chance to succeed.

Crossing my fingers it’s added after kickoff in the next round of virtual KoP items.

@Lockjaw8y9 Do you know anything you can share about the Adobe donation? Is it officially not going to be available this year?

I’m still able to designate someone as an Adobe Creative Cloud mentor through the FIRST Dashboard, though I’ll have to wait and see if I get anything on the Adobe side.

Where are you seeing that? I’ve searched all over the Dashboard (as a designated Lead Mentor) and can’t find anything like being able to designate an Adobe Creative Cloud mentor. We have some students who made great use of CC in previous years and are disappointed to not have access any more. Even through TechSoup and our nonprofit org, Adobe wants nearly $250 for a single user to have access.

It’s in the drop down menu as one of the options for inviting new team contacts.

Huh, it isn’t for me. I wonder if our Lead Mentor 1 can see it, I’ll have to ask her. But thank you for the specifics of where to look!

Is there someone already listed as that person? I found that after I designated myself as the ACC mentor the option went away.

That would be awesome! I have also looked at the techsoup option and it’s not inexpensive.

We are still working on it internally. The process for this kind of donation has changed internally, and we’re hopeful that we will be able to continue the grant for 2022. I’ll let you all know as soon as we get a decision.

While we are waiting, is there someone at Adobe we can send gratitude emails to?
