Nominations for UW Women in STEM Own It! Awards Accepted

March 25, 2020

Nominations are still being accepted for the fifth annual Own It! Awards for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) at the University of Wyoming. The deadline is Monday, March 30.

“The Own It! in-person celebration is canceled, but that won’t stop us from honoring the outstanding women on campus and around Wyoming who are doing amazing work in STEM,” says Lisa Abeyta, UW coordinator of Student Research Programs. The program is located with Wyoming NSF EPSCoR (National Science Foundation Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research).

Winners’ names will be posted on the Wyoming EPSCoR website.

Abeyta says the awards help increase the visibility of an often-overlooked group in STEM, which can be fundamental in encouraging women to participate in science.

Researchers are nominated for their outstanding scientific and scholarly achievements. Many will receive awards in categories for undergraduate and graduate students, STEM professionals, pre-tenured and tenured faculty members, and community members.

Wyoming EPSCoR and its partners develop award nomination criteria. Nominations are for women who exemplify the following:

-- A woman student, STEM professional, faculty or community member who has made significant contributions to her field of research.

-- A woman who demonstrates service, leadership and mentoring among her peer group.

-- A woman who inspires teaching and learning among her community.

-- And, a woman who is deserving of celebration.

Other sponsors are the Wyoming IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) program; the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium; the College of Engineering and Applied Science; Women in Math, Science and Engineering (WiMSE); and the Learning Actively Mentoring Program (LAMP).
