Students encouraged to apply for Governor’s STEM Team

Gov. Eric. Holcomb, Secretary of Education Katie Jenner and Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell invite Indiana high school students to apply for the 2022 Governor’s STEM Team.

Holcomb developed the competition in 2017 to highlight Indiana’s top high school students for their achievements in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.

This program honors four outstanding high school students for their exceptional efforts and accomplishments in one of the STEM disciplines. Winning students each receive a $1,000 deposit into an Indiana CollegeChoice 529 Direct Savings plan, administered by Mitchell, and letterman jackets identifying them as members of the Governor’s STEM Team.

The submission period for the program opened Friday. Applications may be submitted via form.jotform.com/213203880658962. The deadline for applications is 11:59 p.m. Feb. 4.

The program will recognize the top high school STEM students in the state with consideration for coursework, extracurricular activities, work/research projects, leadership roles and community service.

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