logo1Here’s a quick note from the folks at Girls Inc. of the Island City on their Women Who Dare Awards. The deadline to submit nominees is December 4. (Information on past WWD events, by the way, is here.)

Girls Incorporated of the Island City is now accepting nominations for our Women Who Dare Awards, which will be presented on March 27, 2010. This year’s awards will be given to three teen girls and three women who dare working, in or pursuing a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. This year’s theme, “Honoring Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)” connects to the work we are doing at Girls Inc. on both a national and local level.

In 1985, with funding from the National Science Foundation, we launched Girls Inc. Operation SMART®, a structured approach to helping girls develop enthusiasm for and skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Since that time, more than 750,000 girls have participated in Operation SMART. Through hands-on activities, girls explore, ask questions, and solve problems, and they interact with women pursuing STEM careers.

Be a part of this exciting event by nominating a Teen or a Woman Who Dares for an award.

The deadline to submit nominations is December 4. Nomination forms can also be found on our website at www.girlsincislandcity.org. Please direct questions to Kellee Hearn at khearn@girlsincislandcity.org or 521-1742, ext. 201.
