Every year, the community gathers at Parkland College for the Innovation Celebration – an event honoring the innovators and changemakers in the Champaign-Urbana area. This year’s event was the 14th time the University of Illinois, Parkland College, and the Champaign County Economic Development Corporation have come together to celebrate the continued economic prosperity and entrepreneurial success of Champaign County.

- RingWing, LLC (student startup in EnterpriseWorks) – Student Startup Award
- EarthSense, Inc. (EnterpriseWorks tenant) – New Venture Award
- Roland Garton (SBIR technical consultant) – Paul Magelli Advocacy Award

Congratulations to the winners, and many thanks to the ground-breaking thinkers that make our community better every day.
