The STEMmys have been created to recognize the contributions of African-American individuals and organizations who are contributing to the promotion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education among African Americans in the Greater Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky Region. They are intended to shine a bright light on the strides that have and can be achieved through collective work, support and community ownership. We will intentionally illuminate the possibilities that can be cultivated through demonstrated support and responsibility. The proceeds from the STEMmys will be used to create college scholarships for gifted high school studentts. The event will be held on September 21, 2019 at the Receptions Banquet Hall in Loveland beginning at 5:00pm.
