The Technology portal opened April 22, 2024. To access the Technology portal, please click here.

Pro tip: create a profile using a distribution email, such as so that your team retains access in the event that the original submitter is no longer with the company or has transitioned roles.

You may download the submission form associated with each category below AND within the submission portal.

Once your profile is created, you may begin a new application and follow the instructions for submitting both a single application and/or multiple applications.

Awards are judged on the following criteria: Overview of the technology, innovation, design and creativity, demo component, and measurable benefits.

Each element is worth 6 points, for a total of 30 points. Awards are based on total points.

That means some categories may have more awards than others. Some categories many not have any award winners if the entries don’t earn enough points.

Notifications will be sent to the primary email on your submission portal profile. (Please note that you no longer need to create a new login year after year. You may now create a profile to track submissions year after year, in this program)
