Meet the MasterMinds!
Eight years ago, Westword started the MasterMind Awards, a program that honors this city's most creative class. Over $100,000 years in grants later, the MasterMinds are still going strong.
Meet some previous MasterMinds -- and hear about the honorees who inspire them -- at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Create Denver Expo 2012 at the Colorado Convention Center. I'll be moderating this group which is far from moderate.
Meet the MasterMinds is one of dozens of panels planned for a day that kicks off with a welcome from Mayor Michael Hancock at 9:30 a.m. and ends with a reception at 4 p.m. at Crave and Organic Pizza Company, both in Spire.
Admission is $10; find a complete schedule for the Create Denver Expo here.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
