February 27, 2018 – Manufacturing USA is helping to honor the next generation of innovative leaders through partnering with the Creators of the Teen Choice awards in an all new, first-of-its-kind Science + Innovation Awards. We need your help in nominating those rising stars already positively impacting their communities through what they make!
The creators of the Teen Choice Awards have partnered with Manufacturing USA to honor rising leaders in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM)!
The Science + Innovation Awards are a multi-media, interactive extravaganza where pop culture meets science and technology. Featuring appearances by Hollywood’s biggest sci-fi stars and STEAM celebrities, salutes to the world’s coolest science icons, tech-infused music performances, and awards to outstanding young science innovators, the inaugural Science + Innovation Awards will be streamed live world-wide on April 15, 2018 from Los Angeles.
The future of manufacturing in the United States lies in the hands of next generation scientists, engineers, and manufacturers. By participating in the 2018 Science + Innovation Awards and Carnivale, Manufacturing USA pursues its mission to:
“Manufacturing USA is proud to participate in the Science + Innovation Awards and Carnivale for its unique opportunity to reenergize manufacturing in America by showcasing innovative, world-changing talent,” said Mike Molnar, Director of Manufacturing USA.
As part of this first-of-its-kind event, Manufacturing USA will assist The Science + Innovation Awards with selecting and presenting the Manufacturing Innovation Award. The competition will honor students and mentors that are actively securing the future of manufacturing by pushing boundaries, breaking molds, and making the world a better place through innovations in STEAM. Award recipients will be honored during the Science + Innovation Awards in Santa Monica, California on April 15, 2018.
The Manufacturing Innovation Champion Award will recognize spokespeople, trainers, mentors, or educators throughout the country who demonstrate to the next generation what it means to “make”. Winners will be selected based on their leadership, collaboration, innovation, and impact in promoting manufacturing in their community, state, or across the U.S.
The Manufacturing Innovation Student Awards will honor those rising leaders 13 years and older who have contributed to the advanced manufacturing community through inventing new products, processes, or techniques. Winners will be selected based on their leadership and innovative ability to solve problems rather than the complexity of their projects or solution.
