Ben Sturgeon Award

The annual Ben Sturgeon Award was established at the end of 1991 by the SID UK & Ireland Chapter in conjunction with the British Liquid Crystal Society for young individuals or groups (under 40yrs old), who have made a significant contribution to the development of displays in the UK. The award was named after Dr Ben Sturgeon, R & D Director of BDH, who died in September 1990, aged 64.
