    STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and our future generation of professionals in these areas are decreasing. The statistics are staggering; enough to make your jaw drop. As we grow and prosper, we’ll be looking for that next awesome technology feature like the iPhone, an amazing app that will change our lives, more interactivity online, and literally reaching for the stars and landing on Mars.

    But we cannot make incredible headways in the field of technology without the imaginative and genius minds like Jobs or Gates. This is where we need your creative talent; to help encourage the youth of today to tap into an unknown talent they may possess and pursue that talent to help all of us.

    Design a poster that entices girls into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). There are young girls that have all the talent in the world to be bright and amazing. Someone just has to tell them that it is in their reach, that they can do it, and encourage them to try. Maybe you can be that someone. Design a poster for young women in every state of the United States that gives them the encouragement they may need to one day be great.

    Be creative! You can come up with any ideas and show them through your design, as long as they represent STEM and make the observer (girls) want to read and learn more about it.

    You can send as many submissions as you come up with as long as each submission is a unique design.

    There is no entry fee.

    Open to all artists and designers ages 18 and older living in the United States.
