The winners for the 2020 IDEA competition have been announced.
According to the release from the Northwest Minnesota Foundation, Ron Bergman took first place for the Muskox, a snow removal product that moves in two directions, versus the conventional single direction snowblower. Bergman won a $15,000 cash prize and a $5,000 service package from IdeaWorks.
Runners up, in no particular order, include Michael Hendricks’ Moonlit Analytics, Amber Lynne Cooper’s Table for 7, and Tim Halberg and Marty Feil for F&H Design.
The release says the pandemic caused the annual awards banquet to be postponed, but a virtual recognition is set to take place in the fall in conjunction with kicking off next year’s competition.
