Hosted by STEM Fellowship, in partnership with John Polanyi Collegiate Institute’s Metamorphosis Girls STEM Conference, the #MySTEMStoryIs contest is a chance for girls to share their STEM stories with other girls, and the whole world.
This contest is is open to any grade 6, 7, 8 and 9 students in Canada who identify as female. Participating contestants must be either Canadian citizens, permanent residents or foreign students living in Canada and studying in a Canadian school.
Note: you do not have to attend the Metamorphosis Girls STEM Conference to participate in this contest!
Grade and Submission Categories:
Grade Category 1: Grades 6 & 7
There are three (3) submission categories for each grade category.
Please keep good ‘netiquette’ (network etiquette) in mind when you enter this contest! Remember to be mindful of your language, to not plagiarize and to respect other people’s privacy (e.g. if someone appears in your video or visual entry, be sure to ask for their permission). A general rule to practicing good netiquette is that if you wouldn’t say it or do it in-person, then you shouldn’t do so in cyberspace either.
Each contestant can submit only one entry to the competition. Submissions must be sent in by no later than Thursday February 22nd 2018 at 11:59 PM EST.
How to Submit:
All six (6) winners will be interviewed by a STEM Fellowship executive, and their STEM story will then be shared widely across social media platforms.
Ultimately, these interviews will be published as a part of the STEM Fellowship Journal’s Perspectives & Letters section. The STEM Fellowship Journal is an open-access, PhD peer-reviewed student-run journal that publishes research primarily by high school and university students in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields. Our journal is supported by Canadian Science Publishing – Canada’s largest scientific publisher.
