STEM Awards Nominations

SIM STEM Awards postponed into 2021

Just like each of you, SIM continues to adjust to the changing circumstances that face us each day. The Outreach Committee realizes that while your chapters continue supporting your local non profits, it can be a challenge. Given that most of our members are focused on resuming business operations, we have decided to forgo the SIM STEM Awards for 2020.

New dates and details will be announced prior to our Giveback Campaign in November. This will provide the chapters an opportunity to engage members in volunteer and support activities plus capture those "above and beyond" efforts that epitomize SIM's Outreach efforts.

Stay tuned for further details.

2020 STEM Awards Program Overview
The 2020 Awards are for accomplishments in 2019.  

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

STEM Pioneer: recognizes a Chapter member whose contributions have significantly advanced local STEM initiatives over multiple years, these can include both the local chapter initiatives and those in the broader community.

Most Inspiring Leader:
recognizes a Chapter member or RLF Graduate who has been deeply and personally involved in the local chapter’s STEM programs/initiatives and is actively involved in recruiting and mentoring STEM students

STEM Non-Profit Partner Award:
