Our Partnership with 4-H Continues to Grow!

Last year HughesNet kicked off an amazing partnership with 4-H, the nation’s largest youth development and empowerment organization. Together, we’ve inspired kids nationwide to get more involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education. HughesNet sponsored the 4-H National Youth Science Day, including a contest that awarded two aspiring young scientists with trips to Washington, DC. Several states received sponsorships to build their 4-H camp science programs. And more than 1,000 events connected to National Youth Science Day were registered—almost double the previous year.

Building on the momentum generated last year, we are excited to continue supporting 4-H in their commitment to introduce more American youth to hands-on, community-based STEM education. Our partnership in 2015 will include an exciting new initiative:

Innovation Incubator —

In this new program, thousands of youth across the nation will design innovative science solutions to solve real community challenges. States will compete to receive sponsorships, and again two young innovators will be selected to receive an all-expenses paid trip to the flagship 4-H NYSD event in Washington, DC.
