The STEAM Horizon Awards invite Canadian youth to promote changes in their communities by working within the following disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM). Five winners will be selected for a $25,000 prize, will be invited to Ottawa during Science Odyssey Week, and will be recognized at the Foundation’s award ceremony in May 2018.
The recipients of these awards will have made formal or informal achievements in a STEAM field. Formal achievements may include winning at a science fair or having a patented invention, for example. Informal achievements may include founding a local club in a STEAM field or creating a local art installation, among others. The judges want to see that the achievements will make 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.
