The Atrium Stage at Cobo Hall gained attention at noon on Education Day at the North American International Auto Show as GreeningDetroit.com’s Transport Innovation Team revealed their 2017 Innovation Awards.
The four awards — Planet Guardians, Workforce Warriors, Best Dressed, and Leader of the Pack, were presented to corporations Inventev, Ford Motor Company, Nissan, and Wind River respectively by Jason Best and Jill Dougherty of the TIP Team, a squad of exceptional young talent found in Metro Detroit.
These one-of-a-kind awards were designed by GreeningDetroit.com Founder John Carlos and Executive Director Cathleen Francois with ReclaimDetroit, a division of Detroit Non-Profit EcoWorks, to be a representation of what the award stands for: an expression of the regions history, sustainability, and innovative thought. Reclaimed from the Firehouse across from Cobo Hall, the over 500 year old wood was used as the base of the award. The Firehouse is presently being renovated into the Foundation Hotel, (http://aparium.com/hotels/the-foundation/).More
