Scholar Recognition - STEM

The AAUW - Whidbey Island Branch initiated the Scholars Recognition Project in 2001. We honor high school junior women who have exhibited excellence in the fields of mathematics, science or technology. One student is selected in each of these disciplines by teachers at each of the three island high schools. This recognition is to celebrate our scholars and encourage young women to pursue education and careers in these fields. This recognition supports the nationwide program known as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in which young people are encourage to apply themselves in these fields.

At the April Scholars Recognition Reception each scholar receives an AAUW - Washington Certificate of Excellence and a small stipend. The Whidbey Island Scholars recognition poster, which contains photos of these scholars, is displayed at the reception and again at AAUW's state convention
