Are you a student who is interested in a STEAM-related field? Are you an aspiring scientist, inventor, or designer? Do you want to create positive change in your community? Well, here is your chance to show what you can do—and win money toward your post-secondary education!  

The STEAM Horizon Awards invite Canadian youth to promote change in their communities by working within the following disciplines: science, technology, engineering, art and design, and math (STEAM). Five winners will receive $25,000 each toward their post-secondary education. Winners will be invited to Ottawa, where they will be recognized for their achievements at the Ingenium Foundation’s awards ceremony in April 2019.

To enter, you must show that you have made formal or informal achievements in a STEAM field. Formal achievements could include winning at a science fair or having a patented invention, for example. Informal achievements could include founding a local club in a STEAM field or creating an art installation, among other things. Whatever the achievement, it must have a positive impact on the community. The judges will also be looking for youth who have the potential to inspire others and to create a better world for future generations. For more information, visit www.steamhorizonawards.ca.
