Our 2020 award event originally scheduled for Saturday March 21st was cancelled due to the coronavirus.
Gift bags trophies and certificates were mailed out in early September.
In lieu of a virtual award ceremony our lead sponsor Apple hosted a 6 week workshop for all of the awardees (see the image above and details below).
