Announcing the Secretary of Transportation’s “Recognizing Aviation and Aerospace Innovation
in Science and Engineering” (RAISE) Award challenge competition!!!
This award competition is a direct outcome of the Secretary of Transportation’s interest
in STEM education and developing the next generation of transportation leaders.
The Secretary’s RAISE Award competition encourages innovative scientific and engineering
achievements by the next generation of leaders in our field. This year there is a
High School division that competes separately from the University division. With this
change, the Secretary’s RAISE Award competition will encourage innovative scientific
and engineering achievements by the youngest members of the next generation as well
as those in Universities who are already showing serious talent for leadership in
our field. For more information, Please click here. Below is also a link to the Secretary’s Blog post.
The application period is now open, but it closes on December 30, 2014.
Let's have some outstanding entries from West TN!!!!
