LaunchCode’s Moonshot Awards 2020

LaunchCode is excited to present the 2020 Moonshot Awards! In the spirit of entrepreneur Jim McKelvey, LaunchCode’s Moonshot Awards recognize the efforts of St. Louis trailblazers — those working toward new solutions to better our community.

Congratulations to the 2020 Moonshot nominees who are trying audacious things to move our region forward! Moonshots are bold attempts at a better future. The community at large honored these innovators by nominating them for a Moonshot Award in one of five categories which are based on LaunchCode’s core values.

The Award Selection Committee will choose fifty finalists who will be announced to the public approximately one month before the winners are revealed at the Moonshot Awards celebration, date TBD. Follow us on social media and sign up for the newsletter for the earliest updates on the new Moonshot Awards date and other event changes.

Once health considerations have abated, we look forward to a celebration of St. Louis amazingness. The Moonshot Awards Breakfast at the St. Louis Science Center’s McDonnell Planetarium will be a special morning, with networking among the inspiring space flight exhibits, chef-created breakfast, music and visual programming, and awards presented by Jim McKelvey.
