Winning entries in the 2022 LEAP (Leadership in Engineering Achievement Program) Awards were announced by WTWH Media today in 14 categories:
Switches & Sensors, and
Test & Measurement.
These brands cross four of the company’s design engineering brands: Design World, Fluid Power World, Fastener Engineering, and EE World. This year’s winners were chosen by an independent judging panel of 14 engineering and academic professionals.
For each category, judges could award Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mentions, but note that all categories do not necessarily have all of these medalists, based on the scoring. All medalists and Honorable Mentions can use the winner logo in their marketing efforts: Click here for the winner logo.
