Last night MAKE’s Maker-in-Chief Sherry Huss accepted the San Mateo Mayor’s award from Mayor David Lim on behalf of Maker Faire. Mayor Lim had kind things to say about Maker Faire and its impact on the Bay Area community and beyond. He shared a story about taking his 7-year-old daughter to Maker Faire and how important it is to her.

Maker Faire also received recognition from Congresswoman Jackie Speier, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, and both houses of the state legislature. Thanks! Congratulations to the Maker Faire Team and makers everywhere.
