The eCYBERMISSION team is pleased to announce the new 2010-2011 awards structure, re-organized to honor a larger pool of students for showing an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics throughout the country. This change enables eCYBERMISSION to grant more awards to students this year than any other year since the program’s inception.
eCYBERMISSION will now award one first-place and one second-place winning team per grade, per state! Each state’s first-place winning team will receive $1,000 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds per student, with second-place receiving $500 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds per student! Each team that submits a Mission Folder receiving a composite score of at least 200 will win an Honorable Mention Award. Students on these teams will each receive an eCYBERMISSION STEM tool kit to further aid them in research and scientific exploration!
For further information regarding recent changes to the awards structure, including details on regional and national awards, please visit the Awards section of the eCYBERMISSION web site.
In addition, please attend one of our upcoming webinars to learn more about how this new awards structure will positively affect your students!
