An Evening with Innovators, The Founder's Innovation Prize

Location: Theater in the Woods
Presenter: Jim Payne
EAA’s Founder’s Innovation Prize competition aims to reduce the rate of in-flight loss of control accidents in experimental amateur-built aircraft by challenging EAA members to come up with a solution. Submissions range from technology to training and are evaluated based on effectiveness, ease of installation, and cost.
Five finalists are chosen each year to present their solutions in front of a panel of expert judges. The judges then award first-, second-, and third-place winners with prizes of $25,000, $10,000, and $5,000 respectively
