STEM Recognition

Celebrating Excellence in STEM Education across our Region with the STEM Program Awards

Each year, the Finger Lakes STEM Hub recognizes exemplary K-12 programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We highlight these programs to inspire others in our region, and to showcase the many different ways that STEM is being incorporated into the classroom, afterschool programming and community events.   These programs can be used as models and inspiration for others to incorporate STEM into their own programming. STEM education programs and/or projects are evaluated using the NYS Quality STEM Rubric, which is linked below.

The awards showcase the excellent programs that already exist in the Finger Lakes STEM Hub’s nine-county area, including the counties of Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates. Prior Award Winners are welcome to apply again, provided it is for a different program or project.
