Award-DaVinci

DaVinci Award

For Outstanding Creativity

The paths we follow on our journeys were once uncharted and unknown – until someone took a bold step in a new direction and paved a way for us to follow. To solve our Challenges, imagination, creativity, originality, and courage are req uired. We honor those individuals and teams who most clearly demonstrate that spirit of adventurous risk in their solutions – those who most creatively traveled to reach truly new and unique destinations. The DaVinci Award is named to honor one of humanit y’s greatest creative thinkers, Leonardo Da Vinci. Awards will include an inscription of Leonardo’s personal motto “Sapere Vedere” (To Know How to See ) – fusing classical thought and philosophy with art and science to propose new and creative outl ooks of the world. *Please note: solutions need not be successful to demonstrate the attributes of creativity and risk taking.
