Pence to present STEM awards

INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Mike Pence will recognize two outstanding high school seniors this spring for exemplary performance in math and science. One male and one female student will be selected for the Indiana Mr. and Miss Math/Science honor, and each will receive a $2,000 Indiana CollegeChoice 529 Direct Savings Plan scholarship contribution for their achievements.

Academic performance in science, math, engineering and technology classes will be considered, in addition to extracurricular activities, work/research projects, leadership roles and community service.

Applications for the awards are available at https://secure.in.gov/apps/mathscienceawards/ and will be accepted through 6 p.m. April 25. Nominations may be submitted by teachers, schools, community organizations or the students themselves.

The nominations will be reviewed by a panel of STEM experts, including teachers, college and university instructors, and staff from the Department of Education and Center for Education and Career Innovation.

Winners will be named in May, and the scholarship contribution may be added to the student’s existing 529 Plan, or used to initiate a new plan. The Indiana CollegeChoice 529 Direct Savings Plan is administered by the Indiana Education Savings Authority.
