"Last week's news that the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences gave its 2000 Nobel Prize in physics to Dallas' Jack St. Clair Kilby coincides with the announcement of the 2000 Kilby Awards Foundation laureates."
"The Kilby Awards Foundation was created by Dallas businesswoman Victoria Smith Downing and a small group of philanthropic, civic and business leaders in 1990 to honor Mr. Kilby."
"His invention of the integrated circuit and co-invention of the handheld calculator inspired the foundation, which "identifies, celebrates and provides heroic role models for future generations."
"This year's laureates were chosen for "embracing the spirit of creativity for the benefit of humanity."
