 with the 2014 High Sheriff Peter Lee
SATRO’s STEMX Awards are set to put Surrey’s talented young people centre stage.  Showcasing excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), the awards will celebrate the excellent practice and opportunity which exist in the area and demonstrate what companies and young people are doing to reduce the skills shortages.

There is a fantastic heritage of innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in Surrey and the South East. A wealth of large and small to medium enterprises make the region an innovation powerhouse contributing to economic growth and development. Finding and nurturing the skills needed to fuel this growth can be a challenge, especially in STEM subjects. SATRO and the STEMX Awards are playing their part to help meet this challenge.

There are six Awards and applications are invited from businesses and individuals :

STEM Apprentice:
     - Individual achievement
     - Contribution to business
     - Progression

- Best STEM School leaver training programme

- Award for Business for working with schools to support the development of STEM skills  

- Best contribution to business from students undertaking a STEM work placement 


SATRO’s STEMX Awards build on the success of its Apprenticeship and Scholars Awards. Working with Surrey Chambers of Commerce and EH Enterprises, this year’s initiative will be even bigger and better.  With three new categories and a amazing array of talent on show, the awards will be an inspiration to young people and employers alike.
 
SATRO Chief Executive, Dr Beccy Bowden said “SATRO’s STEMX Awards seek to show case the wealth of STEM opportunities in our area through the Awards which we hope will encourage more young people to study STEM subjects and make the most of the many opportunities that exist ”

The Awards Ceremony will take place on 29th September at the prestigious Living Planet Centre in Woking and the evening promises to be a fantastic celebration of science, engineering and innovation with opportunities to view examples of young people’s work in industry and listen to an inspirational speaker.
