The SWENext Northrop Grumman High School Community Award Program emphasizes the impact SWENexters can have in their communities to solve real-world problems. The award also stresses the interconnectedness of the SWE Community and gives awardees a chance to interact with SWE members, companies, and colleges. In fall 2019, SWENexters in grades 9, 10 & 11 who participated in our Northrop Grumman Community Award Challenge created posters that answered: “How do we get more female middle school and high school students involved with STEM?” and “How do we encourage these students to stick with STEM as they plan for college?”
We are pleased to announce our 25 winners, who have all won the following:
- Registration to WE19 for the recipient and one adult chaperone.
- Participation in the SWENext High School Leadership Academy.
- Participation in Invent it. Build it.
- Exclusive Behind the Scenes Engineering Tour of Disneyland.
- Participation in Community Award poster presentations during the Outreach EXPO where they will present their poster to middle school girls, parents, educators, and professional engineers.
