SWENext Community Award Winners 2019:

  • Michaela James, 7th grade
  • Yabesra Ewnetu, 8th grade
  • Elizabeth Kim, 11th grade: "Too often are girls dissuaded from careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) because they believe they are not smart or strong enough. It is important for young women to pursue STEM careers because they empower females, inspire them to find their voices, and provide them with the opportunity to positively impact the world. Recognizing the importance of early STEM education, especially in young girls, I co-founded STEAM Ahead, an outreach program that teaches and excites elementary school students about STEM. Through STEAM Ahead, I share my passion for these fields, fueling the pipeline for the next generation of scientists and engineers. As President, I organize events with the local public library, engaging my audience through lessons on STEM principles and performing interactive scientific demonstrations. STEAM Ahead has already touched over 400 attendees – many of them girls – since its inception in 2016. This year, I was awarded the SWENext Community Award for my commitment and dedication to raising STEM awareness and empowering young women in STEM. Encouraging girls to pursue STEM careers is vital, as they can tackle real issues, take initiative, and improve the lives of those around them. Women in STEM can shape the future."
