NC Tech Awards

At year’s end, NCTA will recognize those making significant contributions to the state’s technology sector through the NC Tech Awards. Formerly known as the 21 Awards, the NC Tech Awards are given annually to companies, institutions and individuals for their contributions to the North Carolina technology community.

The only statewide technology awards program of its kind, the NC Tech Awards have grown in prestige over the twenty years of their existence. Winners are recognized for their commitment to excellence, innovation and leadership in a number of categories.

At this premier technology event, "Beacons" will be awarded to 34 organizations and individuals during a gala to be held in November of the coming year. Companies can apply directly and one need not be an NCTA member to be eligible.

A review committee comprised of technology leaders in the industry, education and non-profit spaces will select the NC Tech Award finalists. These finalists will be announced in early October.

As in past years, a "Technology Executive of the Year" will be honored as determined by the results of an online vote.

Nominate an individual, apply on behalf of your company, or register online to attend the event.
