Nominations Needed For 2018 Science + Innovation Awards

Manufacturing USA is helping to honor the next generation of innovative leaders through partnering with the Creators of the Teen Choice awards in an all-new, first-of-its-kind "Science Innovation Awards Presented by Manufacturing USA." SME needs your help in nominating those rising stars positively impacting their communities through what they make!

The Science Innovation Awards are a multimedia, interactive extravaganza where pop culture meets science and technology. The inaugural show will feature appearances by Hollywood's biggest sci-fi stars and STEAM celebrities, salutes to the world's coolest science icons, tech-infused music performances and awards to outstanding young innovators.

***The event was originally scheduled for earlier this year. Due to some exciting new developments, the event will now be taped on August 19, 2018, and air on NATIONAL TELEVISION in September 2018!***

As part of this first-of-its-kind event, Manufacturing USA is assisting the Science Innovation Awards with selecting and presenting the Manufacturing Innovation Award. The competition will honor students and mentors that are actively securing the future of manufacturing by pushing boundaries, breaking molds and making the world a better place through innovations in STEAM. Award recipients will be honored during the Science Innovation Awards in Santa Monica, California, on August 19, 2018.
