Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award
One of the changes related to the X PRIZE Cup is that the Pete Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award is moving to a new home, although it still has a strong connection to the X PRIZE Foundation. Nancy Conrad, who founded the student competition honoring her husband Pete Conrad, has been working for some time to expand the suite of programs under the Conrad Award umbrella. This month, Nancy established the Conrad Foundation to energize and engage students in science and technology through unique entrepreneurial opportunities. With the delay of the Cup and the founding of the Conrad Foundation, it was a great time to officially move the management of the Spirit of Innovation Award over to the Foundation. You can find out more about the Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award, and how the X PRIZE is involved, on the Conrad Foundation webpage: http://www.conradfoundation.org/.
