The Need


Increasingly, STEM literacy is a requirement for success in life. Making informed life choices including health decisions, civic participation, and financial investments, all require the ability to analyze and synthesize vast and various amounts of information. All require a base-level competence in science, technology, engineering, and math — referred to within this work as STEM literacy, or competencies for an innovation economy. Further, a 2014 report of the National Network of Business and Industry Associations concludes that included within the skills all employees need, no matter where they work, are the ability to apply knowledge in mathematics, science, technology, and critical thinking.


The Award


  • STEM-focused tour of Sports Authority Field at Mile High for winning educator and up to 25 students, including transportation stipend and invitation to host one class session at the stadium.
  • Denver Broncos Tackle STEM jersey to proudly display in their classroom to recognize their accomplishments in championing STEM in Colorado.
