This grant applies to the prizes and competitions utilized to motivate Innovation in our community. For 2022, competitors came from multiple US states and countries from around the world that included both India and Africa. $80,000 in total cash prizes and scholarships were available for the competitors. We were really excited that some of our top winners came directly from the Racine community.
We look forward to developing those ideas with those individuals to make them a reality and further expanding the Innovators that create ideas and compete in the year to come.
One of the Recent Tech-Prize competitor teams, Achyut Krishnan and Ethan Ferguson (RUSD – CASE High School Graduates) commented “The Tech-Prize competition has been an experience that taught me more than I could ever imagine by allowing me to fall forward…an environment like this is priceless.”
Jeff Daniel, co-Director of Tech-Prize commented “The Tech-Prize competition and process is enabling great ideas and great discussions with those working to create them. The process puts us in direct engagement with innovators and investors throughout our region and even the world. We’re really excited with the results and what this is building into.”
