Tekne Awards – Applications open June 3

OK rural friends, let’s flood the nominations and applications with addresses outside of the Twin Cities! From the MHTA newsletter

Are you an innovator in science and tech at a Minnesota organization? We’re looking for you. Award categories for the 2019 Tekne Awards will be announced on May 28–one week from today.  Applications will be accepted from June 3 to August 9 with the Tekne Awards ceremony to be held on Wednesday, Nov 20.
The Tekne Awards recognize science and technology leaders in Minnesota’s innovation economy. The awards celebrate the individuals and organizations that play a significant role in creating new technologies to educate and improve the lives of Minnesotans and people around the world.
Tekne Lifetime Achievement Award
Exceptional leaders also play a significant role in creating prosperity for our great state.  We recognize them with a Lifetime Achievement Award during the Tekne program.  Recent recipients include Dr. Steven Crouch from the University of Minnesota and Dr. Bhabani Misra from the University of St. Thomas.  New this year, MHTA members are invited to nominate a deserving leader for this award.  Details will be announced next week.
