Nominations sought for technology awards

Nominations will be accepted through Aug. 6 for annual awards presented by the Colorado Technology Association.

The Apex Awards program recognizes the accomplishments of companies and individuals working in the technology sector in the state.

Awards are presented to companies, emerging firms and projects. In addition, individual awards are presented to advocates, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, executives, talent champions and youth tech leaders. The association is scheduled to present the awards at a ceremony set for Nov. 7 in Denver.

Past Apex Award winners from the Grand Valley include Page Tucker, president and chief executive officer of ProStar Geocorp in Grand Junction. Tucker won the award in 2016 for entrepreneur excellence.

Brian Watson and Josh Hudnall, co-founders of the Launch West initiative in the Grand Valley, were finalists for the project of the year award in 2016.
