    Recently, the Missouri Chamber recognized 25 outstanding students from across the state for committing to further their education in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Inspired by signing days for athletes, the Missouri Chamber Foundation's Mathematics and Science Coalition launched the program in 2019 to raise awareness of STEM pathways for students beyond high school.

    "Whether it's to a traditional four-year college, 2-year college or technical school — wherever their passion for STEM takes them — these incoming freshmen are the future of high-demand fields across Missouri. The Missouri Chamber and our partners are thrilled to help tomorrow's nurses, doctors, engineers, welders, IT professionals and scientists reach their postsecondary education goals," said Missouri Chamber President/CEO Daniel P. Mehan.

    The second annual Missouri STEM Signing Day award ceremony was a virtual event streamed on the Missouri Chamber's Facebook page. Each student received a $1,000 scholarship and signed a letter of intent to study a STEM field at their postsecondary education institution of choice. 

    The awardees submitted video messages answering the question, “How do you want to change the world with STEM?” Those videos can be viewed here.

    Last year’s inaugural STEM Signing Day program awarded scholarships to 10 recipients. This year, thanks to the generosity of our partners, 25 high school graduates will receive scholarships. The Missouri Chamber offers the 2020 program in partnership with the Boeing Company, Orscheln Industries, Cerner and the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education and Workforce Development.

    This will be the 8th year that Missouri middle school students have a qualifying competition with the winning team receiving an all-expenses paid trip to compete in at the National Science Bowl sponsored by the United States Department of Energy and hosted in Washington D.C. 

    Here is the link to register teams:  https://science.osti.gov/wdts/nsb/Regional-Competitions/Middle-School-Regionals.  Registration is $30 per team (4 or 5 students) and include everything for the competition, a shirt, meal, invite to the practice scrimmage and all the activities we have on the competition day.

    • This year we are launching two new programs to help coaches defray costs and prepare the students for the competition.  The first program is the Buzzer Kit Lending which allows a registered team to check out our competition grade buzzer kits for practice or local scrimmages.  More details on this program is attached.
    • Our second program is the Travel Reimbursement program which helps offset costs for teams traveling more than 2 hours to the competition on February 22nd.  More details on this program is attached.
    • This year's Missouri Middle School Science Bowl will be held on Saturday, February 22nd, 2020 at Washington University.
    • For teams that are registered by January 3rd, you will be invited to the Scrimmage event that will be held in the evening on Thursday, January 23rd, 2020 at the Bayer Crop Science's campus (formerly Monsanto headquarters).
