Innovation in Education Awards

 

2009 Innovation in Education
Award Recipients

Project Tomorrow and TechAmerica would like to extend their congratulations to the winners of the 16th Annual High-Tech Innovation Awards. The winners were announced on May 14, 2009 at a sold-out dinner and awards ceremony that drew nearly 400 luminaries from local high-tech companies, financial and government institutions, as well as academic leaders, educators, students, investors and media affiliates.

In addition, we would like to thank our sponsor, Emulex, for helping to extend the reach of the Innovation in Education awards program. For the third year, we awarded a college scholarship to the winner of the Emerging Student Innovator Award, and for the first time, program funds were awarded to the Innovative School Program of the Year and High Impact Teacher of the Year winners.

Congratulations to Orange County educators and innovators:
