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.
