The Innovation Celebration was established in 2012 thanks to a generous donation from Samantha Hammontree and the Weiner Foundation. During the inaugural year, a team of Global Business students were given the opportunity to create, develop, and host the CAPS charity event. Since then, the Innovation Celebration has evolved to include students throughout all areas of CAPS in the event design and execution and is now CAPS signature showcase event, raising over $375K to date. This money has been used to support student projects and programming.
The 2019 Innovation Celebration will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at the Hilltop Conference Center. The event will include students from throughout CAPS. A keystone feature of the event will be CAPSTalks where students compete for scholarships.
