Science Innovation Awards


Manufacturing USA needs your help in nominating those rising stars already positively impacting their communities through what they make. 

Due to growing excitement from around the nation, we are excited to announce that the Science + Innovation Awards inspired by Manufacturing USA will broadcast nationwide on network television this Fall!

As part of this first-of-its-kind event, NIIMBL and the other Manufacturing USA institutes will assist the show producers with selecting and presenting the Manufacturing Innovation Award

The competition will honor students and mentors that are actively securing the future of manufacturing by pushing boundaries, breaking molds, and making the world a better place through innovations in STEAM. Award recipients will be honored during the Science + Innovation Awards taping in Burbank, California on Saturday, November 10, 2018. 

Applications for the 2018 Manufacturing Innovation awards are NOW OPEN!

The Manufacturing Innovation Champion Award will recognize spokespeople, trainers, mentors, or educators throughout the country who demonstrate to the next generation what it means to “make”. Winners will be selected based on their leadership, collaboration, innovation, and impact in promoting manufacturing in their community, state, or across the U.S.

The Manufacturing Innovation Student Awards will honor those rising leaders 13 years and older who have contributed to the advanced manufacturing community through inventing new products, processes, or techniques. Winners will be selected based on their leadership and innovative ability to solve problems rather than the complexity of their projects or solution.
