The 2010 General Technology Concept to Company Contest was the seventh C2C competition and was another great success. It took place from January to April 2010. The focus of the contest was on technology innovation across all fields and industries. The event took place in Southern Utah and was targeted towards that region. A point preference was given to applicants from that region in hopes to draw more entrants from Southern Utah and spur innovation there.
Over 75 applicants applied to the contest and of those, eight finalists were chosen. The finalists presented their ideas to a panel of judges on April 9th at the Taylor Health Sciences Center in St. George. After the judges deliberation, the winners were announced later that day at an awards ceremony.
