STEM Outreach Awards


2nd Annual SIM STEM Outreach Awards Program

The STEM Outreach awards provides a means for SIM to recognize chapter contributions of volunteerism and thought leadership for STEM Initiatives. There are four distinct awards to recognize contributions. The award categories are:

  • STEM Pioneer: recognizes a Chapter STEM Outreach Committee Chair, committee member or a chapter board member whose contributions have significantly advanced local STEM initiatives over multiple years.
  • Most Inspiring Leader: recognizes an RLF or Chapter Member who is deeply and personally involved in STEM programs/initiatives and has led innovative programs to recruit and mentor STEM students or young professionals during the past year.
  • Chapter Award – STEM Innovation: recognizes a SIM Chapter who sponsors a significant community outreach initiative highlighting technology innovation, STEM career opportunities, and other types of outreach.
  • STEM Non-Profit Partner Award: recognizes a non-profit partner who has worked closely with a SIM Chapter to make a significant impact in advancing STEM Educational opportunities.

Individuals and SIM chapters may nominate themselves, fellow chapter members, or non-profit organizations. The STEM Award Judges will evaluate all nominees and select the most qualified candidates. Each award category may have a winner and honorable mention who will be recognized during the SIM Connect Live conference in Dallas in April 2018.


Nominations will be accepted from June 15, 2017 through February 16, 2018.
