On April 22, the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry will recognize 20 outstanding students from across the state as they sign letters of intent to study science, technology, engineering and math.
STEM Signing Day puts the spotlight on brilliant Missouri high school seniors as they make the big decision on where to further their education, much in the same way athletes are celebrated as they choose a school.
This year’s signing day event will bring together 20 STEM students from across Missouri for a virtual program streamed live on Facebook, including remarks from Gov. Mike Parson and additional state and business leaders. Each student participating in the event will receive a $1,000 scholarship. The event was created in 2019 by the Missouri Chamber Foundation’s Mathematics and Science Coalition in partnership with The Boeing Company.
“Building a world-class STEM workforce is critical to the future of Missouri’s economy. STEM Signing Day is a chance for our state to celebrate and recognize the academic achievements of some of our brightest young scholars,” said Daniel P. Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber. “STEM Signing Day is a great opportunity to let these young people know how much Missouri values their contributions and that there are outstanding career opportunities right here in Missouri when they are ready to enter the workforce.”
Members of the press are invited to watch the ceremony on the Missouri Chamber’s Facebook page.
