Can a company or individual win two years in a row?

What is the judging process like?
The Hall of Fame & Awards selection committee, consisting of Silicon Slopes chapter leaders, personnel, and community leaders, goes through a rigorous process via criteria within the rubric to select finalists. Finalists are interviewed and a winner is ultimately selected by independent judging panels, again consisting of members of the selection committee with the addition of industry experts.
What is the subject matter of the judging rubric?
The judging rubric is heavily based on the questions asked in each application. Finalists are determined based on their responses to the application questions in relation to their performance in the year 2023. Additionally, winners are selected using the same rubric as well as a deep dive discussion that accounts for all responses, documented accomplishments, and a review of finalist interviews.

What is the dress code?
The Hall of Fame & Awards Gala is a black tie and sneakers event designed to celebrate Utah business and one another. And what better way to do this than to gather and dress up. “What is black tie and sneakers?” you ask. Well, it's a dress code that encourages all to embrace self expression with two important characteristics in mind: 1) wear your best or favorite pair of sneakers, and 2) channel your interpretation of “dressing to the nines” and show up with confidence, no more questions asked.
