Award recipients will also be featured on the CAGIS website, in the CAGIS newsletter, and on social media channels.

The 2022 CAGIS Youth STEM Awards are now closed.

CAGIS Synapse Award for STEM Innovation

The CAGIS Synapse Award for STEM Innovation celebrates girls, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming youth who have demonstrated their passion for STEM (science, technology, trades, engineering, or mathematics) through innovation (i.e. an invention, a project, a publication in a youth science journal, etc.). The innovation can be large (e.g. a new medical invention) or small (e.g. a new pollinator corridor in a community).

CAGIS Seismic Impact Award

The CAGIS Seismic Impact Award recognizes girls, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming youth who have made a difference in their communities with their efforts to make science, technology, trades, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) more equitable, diverse, inclusive, or accessible for underrepresented groups in STEM.

CAGIS Supernova Award for STEM Communication

The CAGIS Supernova Award for STEM Communication honours girls, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming youth who are sharing and communicating their passion for STEM (science, technology, trades, engineering, or mathematics).  STEM Communication can occur through a group (e.g. school) or independently in a number of ways including social media, websites, newsletters, workshops, and more.
