Seeking Nominations for the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame
The Juneau Economic Development Council and the University of Alaska are pleased to join the Alaska State Committee for Research (SCoR) in encouraging nominations for the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame.
The Alaska State Committee for Research (SCoR) created the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame in 2014 to celebrate and honor outstanding individuals who put Alaska on the map as leaders in innovation and to contribute to Alaska’s growing culture of innovation.
SCoR invites interested persons to nominate outstanding innovators to be inducted into the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame. Nominees who are selected by SCoR will be members of the 2021 class and will be inducted at the Innovation Summit held in Juneau in February 2021. Nominations must be submitted no later than November 15, 2020. Nominees must have been an Alaska resident for at least one year, or have made a significant demonstration of the innovation’s links to Alaska or have conducted research work in Alaska.
Alaska is a proving ground for new technology and Alaskans lead the way in developing science and technology to meet the challenges of the Great Land. It is Alaskan ingenuity and a vast tradition of innovation that will benefit Alaska’s future.
