David G. Stone Awards

The Alaska Workforce Investment Board (AWIB), the state’s lead planning and coordinating entity for employment training in Alaska, presents awards each year to professionals who have made significant contributions to career and technical education (CTE) or Registered Apprenticeship in Alaska, and to an employer whose efforts and initiatives have had an extraordinary impact on the community.

The awards are named for David G. Stone, a former Deputy Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development and long-time vice-chair of the AWIB. During his career in public service, Mr. Stone was instrumental in advancing CTE, Registered Apprenticeship, and workforce development opportunities for all Alaskans. Since his death in 2012, the awards have carried his name in recognition of his dedication to workforce development and promoting Alaska hire
