About GWATA's Annual Innovator Awards

Since 2000, GWATA has recognized local innovation and leadership during the annual Innovator Awards Luncheon.

Leaders from across the region come together to celebrate and learn about new technology and innovation in North Central Washington. Every year we accept nominations from the community in five categories:

  • Entrepreneur
  • Tech Savvy Business
  • STEM Educator
  • Innovative Problem Solver (post secondary student)
  • Future Technology Leader (k-12 student)

One of GWATA’s mission is to inspire ideas and innovation while celebrating those in our community who are pioneering movements in technology, entrepreneurship and STEM education.
