Prize challenges are often overlooked, but Tridium, a forward-thinking technology company, can attest to the immense benefits that lie within. Their recent victory in the Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) challenge hosted by NAWCTSD and held at Tech Grove showcased their prowess and gave them a handsome reward of $50,000.


Don't sleep on prize challenges to elevate your company's profile. These contests offer a unique avenue to showcase your skills, make meaningful connections, and, like Tridium, potentially win significant awards. The next challenge could be the stepping stone to your company's success, so seize the opportunity and get in front of your customers today. Who knows, you might be the next $50,000 winner!
