INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Mitch Daniels announced that applications are now still being accepted for the 2012 Hoosier High School Math and Science Awards. This marks the fifth year for the awards, which the governor created to recognize Indiana’s top high school math and science talent. All Indiana high school students are eligible to receive the award and can apply online. Nominations from teachers, principals and other school staff members will also be accepted. Application criteria include SAT, ACT and Advanced Placement scores, academic awards and prizes and grades received in math and science courses. Winners, acknowledged as Mr. or Miss Math or Science, will be selected by a committee of high school math and science teachers, curriculum experts from the Indiana Department of Education and representatives from the governor’s office. Each winner will receive a $2,000 academic scholarship from McGraw-Hill Education.
The award was developed with input from the Indiana Science Technology Engineering Mathematics Network, the Hoosier Association of Science Teachers, Inc., the Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Science Education Foundation of Indiana, Inc. and the Indiana Department of Education.
Joseph Botros from Terre Haute South Vigo High School and Jeffrey David Shen from Park Tudor School in Indianapolis were named Mr. Indiana Math and Mr. Indiana Science last year.
Applications are available online at secure.in.gov/apps/mathscienceawards. The deadline to apply is April 6. The governor will present the awards in May.
