The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is proud to present the 2018 SWENext Local Innovator Awards Program, recognizing the outstanding young women shaping the future of SWE by developing an engineering identity in themselves and others. The Local Innovator Awards Program celebrates those who have charted their own path in the engineering fields and who strive to elevate STEM in their community. These awards are given to SWENexters in their junior and senior years of high school. Award recipients will have built a solid foundation toward future success and fulfillment in engineering by demonstrating intellectual curiosity, enthusiasm, persistence, and leadership.
THIS APPLICATION IS USED TO APPLY FOR ALL SWENEXT LOCAL INNOVATOR AWARDS HELD AT THE FIVE WE LOCAL CONFERENCES
To acknowledge the obstacles faced when living outside of urban centers, the SWENext Judith Gray Innovator Award was created. In honor of Ms. Gray, this Innovator Award is given to SWENexters in rural areas. To be eligible for the SWENext Judith Gray Global Innovator Award, applicants must live in a rural area as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau. If you live outside the U.S., please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine eligibility.
