We'll be recognizing exemplary partnerships and efforts being made in STEM-H education in our region and providing educators and community & industry members an opportunity to discuss possible collaborations. 

(Community and/or industry attendee registration helps subsidize the cost for teacher attendees!)



The Southern Virginia STEM-H Education & Industry Achievement Awards will be presented on March 23. We will recognize all award nominees and announce the award recipients in four categories:

  • Community Champion for STEM-H Education
  • STEM-H Educator of the Year

Sponsors & Exhibitors

If you're organization supports students or educators in STEM-H we hope you'll consider participating as an Exhibitor. Exhibitors are welcome to exhibit for one or both days of the Summit and are highly encouraged to present.

This event would be impossible without the generosity & support of our sponsors. Sponsorship donations allow us to offer this wonderful program to our regional students completely free of charge. Please consider showing your support of STEM-H education by becoming a sponsor of the 2016 Summit.
