High school seniors in Utah interested in pursuing a career in the STEM field are encouraged to apply to be a part of the first annual Utah STEM Signing Day, presented by Boeing and the Utah STEM Action Center.

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

“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 selected from across the state will be recognized at the Utah State Capitol Rotunda on April 29, 2019. Education, business and community leaders will attend the ceremony and join Boeing, the STEM Action Center, and Tallo in recognizing these students’ talents and drive for success.

“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.”

High school seniors who demonstrate achievements in STEM and graduate in 2019 can apply to participate in STEM Signing Day here.
