History

A Brief History of the Awards The Awards began at CES in 2014 as the Appreneur Scholars Award. Two students were awarded during CES in Las Vegas. The Award was sponsored by the Kay Family Foundation

So far we’ve awarded 28 scholarships that we hope will help change the lives of young innovators, providing them with the reinforcement and encouragement they deserved. We keep in touch with them and know they’re all on to fabulous careers. We can’t wait to see what this next group has in store.

As industry member we believe encouragement with programs like these lift all students: girls and boys of all races and all economic backgrounds. If you’re interested in being a part of Young Innovators and sponsoring these fabulous kids contact us at [email protected]
