Open nominations for Women in Tech Awards - Now through May 1

4th Annual Las Vegas Women in Technology Awards Opens Nominations for 2017

Annual award event honors the achievements of local Las Vegas women in technology.

The awards will be held June 2.

Presented by the Las Vegas Community Tech Fund, WomenAdvancing.org and HiTech Las Vegas LLC, the 4th Annual Las Vegas Women in Technology Awards 2017 is now open for nominations. Awards are presented to acknowledge the tremendous contributions in the technology sector made by women in the greater Las Vegas metro area. Nominated women represent many aspects of technology industries including Information Technology (IT), Computer Engineering, Startups and Entrepreneurs. The award categories include:

  • High Tech Woman of the Year
  • High Tech Rising Star
  • High Tech Community Service
  • High Tech Entrepreneur
  • High Tech Mentor

Nominations are now open and will be accepted online through Monday, May 1, 2017 at http://www.vegaswomentechawards.net. Award winners will be recognized and honored by our community during a ceremonial event scheduled to take place on Friday, June 2, 2017.

Newly added this year, the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) will present the Aspirations in Computing Program award to recognize young women interested in technology and computing.

“We encourage the Las Vegas community to take action and nominate a woman they know, right here in Las Vegas, whom has accomplished phenomenal achievements in technology. Together as a collective community, we foster advancements for women in technology,” says Lori Nguyen, President and Chairman of the Las Vegas Women in Technology Awards.

Although U.S. women represent half of the college-educated workforce and continue to grow in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields, they remain underrepresented and make up only 29% of the science and engineering industry; per ngcproject.org/statistics.

“The Women in Tech Awards appropriately acknowledges the success of the women’s movement in encouraging young women to explore STEM careers, and assures continuing focus on technology-focused career opportunities for all,” says Jack Myers, founder of WomenAdvancing.org, an organization committed to supporting and communicating industry opportunities to women.

Helldorado Days at the Movies - May 9

Join us for a screening of the classic 1946 Roy Rogers film Heldorado. And no, “Helldorado” isn’t a typo! Movie theater owners and the film’s production company were so concerned about the word “hell” being displayed on their marquees, they purposely changed the spelling of the film’s title, though signs all throughout the movie clearly say “Helldorado.”

This great American western film is set during the annual Helldorado Days festivities in Las Vegas. Rogers is captain of the guards at Boulder Dam and helps celebrate the town’s frontier heritage while capturing racketeers at local casinos. Footage of the 1946 Elks Helldorado Days parade is featured in the film.

WHO: Las Vegas Elks Lodge No. 1468

The mission of the Elks Lodge is to inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to recognize a belief in God; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its Members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism; to cultivate good fellowship; to perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization, and to provide for its government, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating that Elks Care and Elks Share.

WHY: The Las Vegas Helldorado event began in 1934. In 1935, because of construction on the Dam and the legalization of gaming in Nevada, Las Vegas was a booming town, and Fremont Street was burgeoning with saloons, gambling halls, hotels, shops and restaurants. City leaders knew that once construction was complete, the boom could end and Las Vegas could wind up a ghost town.

The local Elks Lodge decided an annual production of the Helldorado Days festival could provide just the kind of community spirit that would entice Dam workers and their families to stay in Southern Nevada and also encourage visitors back to experience the flavor of the Old West. The idea worked.

Under the Elks Lodge No. 1468 supervision, and with support from the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and local businesses, Helldorado Days took off. The event includes a family friendly parade, contests, and a rodeo.

Cabrera Conducts Bruckner - May 27, 2017

SATURDAY, May 27, 2017 - 7:30pm

Pre-concert conversation at 6:30pm in Reynolds Hall

Donato Cabrera, conductorLiam Boisset, oboe

MOZART Overture to Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), K620

STRAUSS, R. Concerto for Oboe and Small Orchestra

BRUCKNER Symphony No. 6

THEATRICS AND DARING abound in this hearty program featuring an overture from Wolfgang Amadeus’ last opera, Richard Strauss’s only concerto for oboe and Anton Bruckner’s awe-inspiring sixth symphony. The overture to Mozart’s final opera, The Magic Flute, opens the performance with dramatic flair. Rising star, Liam Boisset will make his debut playing Richard Strauss’s autumnal, Oboe Concerto, famously inspired by conversations between the aging composer and a young U.S. soldier, an oboist, at the end of WWII. The evening concludes with Anton Bruckner’s magisterial Symphony No. 6, one of the only symphonies that remained unchanged by the composer. This glorious symphony is a poignant way to finish our 18th season - the 1899 premiere was conducted by none other than Gustav Mahler, who was in the midst of composing his Symphony No. 4 at the same time.
