Ambassadors to the 3rd USA Science and Engineering Festival play a critical role in increasing awareness for the 2014 Festival through marketing and outreach efforts. In exchange for their efforts, Ambassadors are invited to attend the Festival’s special X-STEM event on April 24, 2014 at no cost, in addition to earning valuable community service credits for college applications and resumes. X-STEM Schools get their own Festival webpage, preferential registration for the Nifty Fifty program, reduced School exhibitor fees, and preferred School Bus Grant applications.
