The NMTC Visionary Awards, celebrates our neighbors, colleagues, family, and friends for their volunteer efforts that contribute to building a STEM-educated workforce and advancing technology & innovation. The combination of the two provide rewarding careers for our children, expands our regional economy and protects our national security. This evening gala honors those individuals.
Pre-Covid-19, this gala would include hundreds of attendees, where you’ll find key corporate sponsors, leading education institutions, senior Aberdeen Proving Ground leaders and scientists, NMTC’s senior leadership and member company presidents and other distinguished attendees. We are hoping, come spring, that an acceptable space will be possible for holding this meaningful event.
Our honorees are recommended by the Academy of Visionary Awards along with the NMTC Visionary Awards Committee – a very deliberative process and worthy of the contributions these honorees make continuously to our community. The Academy of Visionary Awards now totals 121 previous honorees of these awards.
Nominations are Open for 2022: Click here for the nonimation form.
