HughesNet and National 4-H Council are proud to announce their STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) partnership won a Silver Halo Award in the Education category from Engage for Good. The Halo Awards are North America’s highest honor for corporate social initiatives and cause marketing, focusing on social good campaigns targeted at consumers, a company and a cause. The HughesNet/4-H partnership was also a Halo award finalist in 2016
The HughesNet/4-H partnership began in 2014, introducing American youth to hands-on, community-based STEM learning. Since then, the events HughesNet and National 4-H Council conducted together have provided hands-on STEM activities to more than 100,000 youth across the country each year. Among them has been 4-H National Youth Science Day (4-H NYSD), the world’s largest youth-led science challenge. Additional programs included the 4-H Youth in Action STEM Pillar Award, STEM days at local 4-H camps, and career exploration programs for National Engineers Week. With a shared passion for STEM, the National 4-H Council and HughesNet aim to inspire the next generation of scientists, build future leaders and power our country’s competitiveness in the global economy.
