(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Indiana high school students can now apply to win a spot on Governor Eric Holcomb’s STEM Team.

Governor Holcomb and Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Jennifer McCormick announced Monday a new program to highlight Indiana’s elite high school students for their work in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The program will honor four high school students for their performance in one of the four STEM subjects, as well as extracurricular activities, work and research projects, leadership roles and community service.

“Engaging students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics prepares them for life beyond high school,” said McCormick. “I am excited for the submissions we will receive and look forward to recognizing our student’s creativity and passion for STEM.”

Gov. Holcomb and Superintendent McCormick will announce the first members of the Governor’s STEM team in May.

Students selected to the Governor’s STEM Team will receive a $1,000 college scholarship and letterman jackets identifying them as members of the Governor’s STEM Team.
