The Southern Utah Concept to Company Contest was the second C2C competition and was another great success. It took place from October ’08 through January ’09. The focus of the contest was on technology and the entries had to include some form of technology in their innovation. The contest was open to anyone across the state; however a 30 point preference was given to entries from Washington, Kane, Iron, Garfield, Beaver, Millard, Sanpete, Sevier, Wayne, Paiute, and Juab Counties. Over 70 people applied to the contest and of those, eight finalists were chosen. The finalists presented their ideas to a panel of judges on Jan 8th and the winners were announced at the Washington County Economic Summit on January 14, 2009.
