Indiana to select outstanding high school seniors for math awards

INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Mike Pence will recognize two outstanding high school seniors this spring for their 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.

While Indiana has thousands of high-performing math and science students, the Indiana Mr. and Miss Math/Science awards will be presented to the most outstanding students. Academic performance in science, math, engineering and technology (STEM) classes will be considered, in addition to extracurricular activities, work/research projects, leadership roles and community service.

“The impact of math and science continue to transform our world every day and we want to recognize the very best math and science students in our state to honor them for their hard work,” said Governor Pence. “I look forward to announcing the winners this spring and I know their academic achievements will inspire other students.”

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 will each receive a $2,000 academic scholarship contribution from the Indiana CollegeChoice 529 Direct Savings Plan, which may be added to the student’s existing 529 Plan, or to initiate a new plan for the winners. The Indiana CollegeChoice 529 Direct Savings Plan is administered by the Indiana Education Savings Authority.
