AAUW Port Townsend Branch presents a Certificate of Achievement and a small gift to the winners of our annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) awards. Typically, nine high school scholars in Jefferson County receive the awards. The winners are nominated by their high school teachers and counselors. They are selected for their outstanding work in STEM subjects.
While this is a small award monetarily, it is an honor to be chosen by their schools as the top female student in the STEM areas. For 2021 we awarded Willow Bennett, Hailey Gallagher, and Cristal Gomez-Cervantes (from PTHS); Natalie Lont, Stormie Elkins, Olivia Benson (from QHS); Tiffany, Madison Burgess, Robyn Weaver (from CHS).
