There are lots of special events in the community:  5k runs, golf tournaments... you name it.  But here's a chance for companies to show off their competitive juices with science, technology, engineering, and math.

The STEM Corporate Challenge will be held in three locations in May.  Up to 25 teams will compete at each event to take home the championship trophy.  A team will consist of five business colleagues.  Teams will participate in five timed competitions.  Referees will officiate the modules and scores will be tracked.  Total scores will determine winning teams.

Prizes will be awarded to the overall top scoring team, top fundraising team, and top individual fundraiser. Top team and individual fundraisers will be determined by individual donations received through Qgiv, NOT including corporate registration fees. We encourage all teams, whether company or individually funded, to use Qgiv, our fundraising site, to raise as much as possible.
