SimVentions Announces 2020 Core Value Award Winners!

Fredericksburg, VA, 12-21-2020: Last week we had the privilege of continuing one of our favorite end of the year traditions, despite not being able to be together in person. Our leadership team hosted a virtual video conference to announce the winners of our 2020 Core Value Awards! For each award, one person from our leadership team shared what that award meant, the finalists, and the winner. They showed clips from previous video calls where they told each person/group that they won, so everyone still got to experience the exciting moment together! Below are the descriptions and winners of each award:
