Be Awards of Excellence now the Be Inspired Awards

The Be Awards of Excellence will continue in 2009, however, the name and format is changing.  The Be Awards Program is now the Be Inspired Awards.  The program will still celebrate the innovative projects of our users.

This October, in Charlotte, North Carolina, we are holding a one-day Be Inspired Awards event to recognize the 2009 Be Inspired Awards finalists and present the winners with their awards. (Due to the later date of the awards ceremony the deadline for Be Inspired Awards nominations is being extended to May 15, 2009.)
