Carter Ledyard Supports STEM Education and Entrepreneurship Through Conrad Challenge

The Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge was founded by Nancy Conrad in honor of her late husband, astronaut, innovator and entrepreneur, Charles “Pete” Conrad Jr. Two teams in each of the four categories – Aerospace & Aviation, Cyber Technology & Security, Energy & Environment, and Health & Nutrition – were awarded the prestigious “Pete Conrad Scholars” or the “Power Pitch” awards. Carter Ledyard intellectual property partner John M. Griem, Jr. served as the master of ceremonies at the Summit, as well as supervising the administration of the Conrad Challenge year-round in his role as President of the Board of Directors of the Conrad Foundation.
