Applicants sought for STEM Team

Gov. Eric. J. Holcomb, Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Jennifer McCormick and Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell invite Hoosier students to apply for the 2019 Governor’s STEM Team (#GovSTEMteam).

Gov. Holcomb developed the competition in 2017 to highlight Indiana’s elite high school students for their work in science, technology, engineering and math.

The program honors four outstanding high school students for their exemplary performance in one of the STEM subjects. Winning students each receive a $1,000 college scholarship from Indiana’s College Choice 529 Direct Savings plan, administered by Treasurer Mitchell, and letterman jackets identifying them as members of the Governor’s STEM Team.

The submission period for the competition opens today, and applications and nominations may be submitted online at https://secure.in.gov/apps/govstemawards/. The deadline for nominations is 11:59 p.m. Sunday, March 31.

Winners will be announced at a Statehouse ceremony in early May.
