Holcomb, McCormick Launch Governor's STEM Team

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Governor Eric Holcomb and Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick have launched a program designed to highlight achievements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics among high school students. The Governor's STEM Team will include four students each year.

Holcomb's office says the students will be honored for their "exemplary performance in one of the STEM subjects," including classwork, extracurricular activities, work and research projects, leadership roles and community service. The program builds upon the state's Mr. and Ms. Math and Science awards.

Each winning student will receive a $1,000 college scholarship and a letterman jacket identifying them as members of the team.

"Indiana is well known for its love of sports, but we must also be a state that uplifts its rock star students—especially in the STEM subjects that are fueling the innovation and entrepreneurship to build our economic future," said Holcomb. "The Governor’s STEM Team will recognize our state’s best and brightest young people with an honor that elevates their status, just as our society does for its finest athletes."

Applications and nominations for the Governor's STEM Team can be submitted online through April 9. Holcomb and McCormick will name the first Governor's STEM Team members in May.
