Now in its fourteenth year, The Tech Awards 2014 honors science and technology innovators whose life-changing work touches millions of people around the world in profound and positive ways.
A signature program of The Tech Museum of Innovation in Silicon Valley, The Tech Awards shines the spotlight on 10 international techmanitarians who are unleashing the potential of technological innovation for a better world. Awards are given in five categories: Environment, Education, Young Innovator (under age 27), Health, and Economic Development.
The technology and its application must be ground-breaking and stand out from existing solutions. The innovation must be in use in the field, be measurably impactful, and have the potential to be used more widely.
Each year, The Tech Awards laureates are invited to Silicon Valley, where they are given access to resources and mentoring to aid in scaling their organizations’ impact and visibility. The visit culminates in The Tech Awards Gala, where the laureates are awarded unrestricted cash prizes of $75,000 and $25,000.
Applications now open.
Deadline: Tuesday, May 6, 2014, 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time
