Elon Musk to Receive Edison Award

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk will receive what's largely recognized as one of the world's premier accolades: Edison Achievement Award.

On April 29, Musk will officially receive the award, honoring him for his "continuous contribution to human-centered design, as well as his positive influence on creating entirely new market opportunities and inspiring future leaders and innovators worldwide."

Clearly, Musk is deserving of this honor.

Frank Bonafilia, Executive Director of the Edison Awards, stated:

"Elon Musk is a true visionary of our time, and we could not be more honored to present him with the 2014 Edison Achievement Award. His intense desire to improve lives and make our world a better place through his abilities and accomplishments serve as living acknowledgment and embodiment of Thomas Edison's values and principles."
