High school seniors in Utah who are interested in pursuing a career in the STEM field can now apply to be a part of the first annual Utah STEM Signing Day, presented by Boeing and the Utah STEM Action Center.
This STEM Signing Day, powered by Tallo, recognizes and celebrates the next generation of STEM talent from around the state. Just like college signing days for athletes, students will sign a letter of intent to pursue a two- or four-year degree in the STEM field after high school.
“We’re excited to support Utah’s first STEM Signing Day and honor the accomplishments of local students who are pursuing careers in STEM,” said Chris Bray, community investor at Boeing. “There is a high demand for STEM talent especially at companies like Boeing, and this is a great opportunity to recognize Utah’s future innovators.”
If chosen, the students from across the state will be recognized at the Utah State Capitol grounds on April 29, 2019. Education, business, and community leaders from around the state will attend the ceremony and join Boeing, the STEM Action Center, and Tallo in recognizing these students’ talents and drive for success.
“We are excited to work with Boeing to elevate and recognize Utah students for their commitment and achievements in their STEM education pursuits,” said Dr. Tamara Goetz, STEM Action Center director. “We know that these students will solve the problems of today and innovate for the challenges of the future.”
Any Utah high school senior graduating in 2019 can apply by first creating an online account on Tallo. The deadline to apply is April 12, 2019. More information on the application process can be found at: https://www.tallo.com/signingday2019ut
