The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) has opened nominations for its 2013 Women of Innovation Awards, a annual program which recognizes women in the workforce who are leaders in the technology, science and engineering fields. The program, now in its ninth year, will also honor high school and college students for their studies, research and accomplishments.
Nomination of candidates can be made at CTC’s easy online nomination form. Nominations are due December 31.
Award recipients in eight categories will be recognized during the 2013 Women of Innovation Awards Dinner at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington on March 19, 2013.
The award categories are: Research Innovation and Leadership, Academic Innovation and Leadership, Entrepreneurial Innovation and Leadership, Large Business Innovation and Leadership, Small Business Innovation and Leadership, Youth Innovation and Leadership, Collegian Innovation and Leadership and Community Innovation and Leadership.
Women of Innovation nominees are hard working, entrepreneurial, and inspirational to others and motivated to excel. They may be growing in their careers or already well-established in their professional lives.

Nominees may also be young high school women (high school seniors) or college women, ages 18 to 25, who are enrolled as undergraduates or graduate students, who have excelled as young inventors, are academically proficient in a science or technology curriculum or have accomplished an extraordinary technology feat that should be recognized for its innovation and uniqueness.
