High school seniors in Utah can now apply to be part of the first ever Utah STEM signing day. The event is being presented by Boeing and the Utah STEM Action Center.

Utah STEM Signing Day recognizes and celebrates the next generation to STEM talent from around the state. Just like college signing days for athletes, students will sign a letter of intent to pursue a two to four-year degree in a STEM field after high school

“We’re excited to support Utah’s first STEM Signing Day and honor the accomplishments of local students who are pursuing careers in STEM,” said Chris Bray, community investor at Boeing. “There is a high demand for STEM talent especially at companies like Boeing, and this is a great opportunity to recognize Utah’s future innovators.”

If chosen, the students from across the state will be recognized at the Utah State Capitol Rotunda on April 29, 2019. The event will be attended by education, business and community leaders from around the state will attend the ceremony.

“We are excited to work with Boeing to elevate and recognize Utah students for their commitment and achievements in their STEM education pursuits,” said Dr. Tamara Goetz, STEM Action Center director. “We know that these students will solve the problems of today and innovate for the challenges of the future.”

Students interested in applying can visit Tallo’s website to apply. The deadline is April 12.
