HughesNet and 4-H4-H GROWN
HughesNet® proudly partnered with the National 4-H Council to support its GROWN program, aimed at building awareness and excitement around science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities among youth.
Through 4-H GROWN, we encouraged alumni to contact the special people from their 4-H days and "check-in" with 4-H by tagging photos of their 4-H friends and follow the conversation online using the hashtag #4HGROWN.
We are proud to say that more than 13,500 4-H alumni checked in as part of the 4-H GROWN program. And the great state of Delaware had the most alumni check in, winning a $10,000 "Innovation Incubator" science scholarship from HughesNet to help Delaware 4-H'ers discover the magic of science.
Together, our organizations serve small, local rural and exurban communities across America. We are passionate about STEM education, building future leaders, and the role they will play in advancing our country’s competitiveness in the global economy. That’s what makes us natural partners in inspiring our next generation of scientists.
We’re investing at the local and regional levels to introduce youth to STEM education and to get them involved in science activities. From county science events to HughesNet “Tech Takeover Days” at 4-H camps, we’re motivating 4-H kids, families, and alumni to support 4-H and their science education programs.
The Importance of STEM Education
Access to quality STEM education shouldn’t be determined by where you live. Kids all across the U.S. should be exposed to STEM. Not only is it important for the development of our youth, but it’s also important for our country’s future.
Our passion towards STEM education is the core driver of our initiatives with 4-H. As the nation’s premier youth development organization, they have a long history of leading innovative programs, and we are proud to support the work they are doing.
