2007 Tech Day in Kentucky
Tech Day in Kentucky was held on March 1, 2007 in recognition of Kentucky’s technology progress. As part of Tech Day in Kentucky, Governor Fletcher presented the 2007 Governor's Technology Awards and released ConnectKentucky’s 2007 Progress Report.
The 2007 ConnectKentucky Progress Report, highlights the nationally recognized achievements of Kentucky's Prescription for Innovation. Governor Fletcher launched the Prescription for Innovation in late 2004 as a statewide initiative to accelerate technology literacy and use across all sectors of Kentucky’s economy and to make access to high-speed Internet, or broadband, available to all Kentuckians by the end of 2007.
Throughout the day, key stakeholders participated in roundtable discussions examining how high-speed internet impacts the security of the Commonwealth, education, healthcare and local government.
The evening concluded with a reception to honor ConnectKentucky stakeholders and legislators at the Berry Hill Mansion located at 700 Louisville Road, Frankfort, Kentucky.
ConnectKentucky extends sincere thanks to all participants and award winners who contributed to another successful Tech Day in Kentucky.
