Click here to nominate a STEM All-Star Student.
Applications Due: Friday, February 15th
The Larks have teamed up with MDU Resources and Gateway to Science to bring STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to the baseball field. Together, we understand the importance of equipping youth with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence and comprehend information.
Every summer we make it our mission to recognize 12 all-star students who exhibit hard work, dedication, and a commitment to using STEM to serve their school and community. Students are nominated by their teacher for their love of learning. The winners are then carefully selected by MDU Resources and Gateway to Science.
In honor of their accomplishment, the Larks recognize each STEM All-Star is during select home games throughout the season.
Each STEM All-Star receives the following:
- Assembly at their school recognizing their accomplishments
- One-day contract with the Larks
- Larks jersey (includes name on the back)
- 4 Larks tickets to a select game
- Story in the Larks game day program
- Opportunity to catch balls with the Larks during batting practice
- On-field recognition and the chance to throw out the first pitch
- A Gateway to Science One-Year Student Membership
Out of the 12 All-Star students, ONE will be selected as the STEM Super-Star.
The STEM Super-Star will be recognized during STEM Education Night at the Ballpark (Wednesday, June 5).
The STEM Super-Star will receive ALL of the above perks above PLUS the following:
- Personalized radio ad promoting their STEM achievements and STEM Education Night
- Opportunity to display their STEM project(s) during the STEM Expo
- Pizza Party at Gateway to Science
Winners will be announced Friday, February 22nd.
