Rylan Daniels ’20 Wins VR/AR Award

On May 31, Windward Junior Rylan Daniels attended the Augmented World Expo, home of the Auggie Awards. In addition to showcasing the best-of-the-best in industry spatial computing, the event, which is the biggest VR/AR expo in the world with over 7,000 attendees, also recognized rising stars in the field.

One such star is Rylan himself, who was awarded The Nextant Spirit Prize. A “Nextant” is a person whom others can turn to for inspiration, guidance, and role modeling, whose compassion is their compass to guide their passion for building the future. The Spirit Prize honors individuals under 19 who have made significant work that has inspired others, and who have great future potential in making an impact with XR.

Congratulations to Rylan on this extraordinary honor! You can read more on his big win here.
