Ingenium STEAM Horizon Award

Founded in 2016, the STEAM Horizon Awards, invites Canada’s youth to promote positive changes throughout their community using science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).

STEAM Horizon Award

The award will be given to an Indigenous student who clearly demonstrate inspiring achievement in these fields by applying their passion to have an impact on their community. Winners can approach their passion for technology and science from any angle, whether from an art and design perspective, research project, public outreach, or development of a new idea or product. Winners of the STEAM Horizons Award will show strong potential to become ambassadors for STEAM fields for younger generations.
To be eligible, students must:

  • be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada;
  • be 16 to 18 years of age at time of application;
  • have been recognized for accomplishments in a formal capacity (e.g. selected as a winner or participant of a science fair, patent application, conference presentation) or less formal capacity (e.g. founding a coding club, developing a course for kids, creating an interactive art installation);
  • have obtained, over the previous year of study, an academic average of 85% or higher;
  • be preparing to enrol or currently enrolled in the first year of post-secondary education (university or college) in a STEAM field in Canada.
