Governor Pence says, “the impact of math and science continues to transform or world everyday and we want to recognize the very best math and science students in our state to honor them for their hard work.”
Applications for the awards are available at ( https://secure.in.gov/apps/mathscienceawards/) and will be accepted through 6 pm EDT on April 25.
