Like high school, spring is full of traditions to celebrate friends. With your help, we launched the inaugural #PTW17 Superlatives, seven categories of people taking part in Philly Tech Week 2017 presented by Comcast.

We announced the winners over Twitter during the #PTW17 Signature Event. Here they are now.

First, the winners of the three categories we got nominations for during the 10-day tech event series.

Best #PTW17 Swag: law firm Saul Ewing got shoutouts for throwback Yo-Yos and light-up fans during our crowded closing party.

Best #PTW17 Venue: new coworking space The Yard was nominated for their roof deck party during the #PTW17 Innovation Crawl.

Best Dressed #PTW17 Speaker: Rakia Reynolds, who was a mentor during Technical.ly Introduced: Curated Founder Connections, got a nomination for a nifty hat and boot combo.

Best #PTW17 Food Spread: Annual hackathon evoHaX was called out for its homemade Pakistani food and pho spreads.

Then the winners of the categories you voted for leading into the week:

Event Most Likely to Have a Waiting List: Our annual closing Signature Event earned your vote, which was fitting with 1,000 ticketed attendees.

Most Beautiful Code: Gabrielle Trotter, lead embedded software engineer at BuLogics.

Most Likely to be Mayor: Bob Moul, CEO at Cloudamize, board member of Philly Startup Leaders, which hosted the Entrepreneur Expo.

Startup Most Likely to Have a Eye-Popping Exit: Stitch, the RJMetrics spinout consolidated sales data platform.
