NASCAR & Chevrolet award Diversity Scholarship to students in STEM

NASCAR and Chevrolet announced the recipients of the third annual NASCAR Chevrolet Diversity Scholarship Contest.  Four undergraduate students from around the country won a total of $20,000 in scholarships based on their knowledge of technology and innovation in the sport of NASCAR.  Each student was treated to a VIP experience at the Monster Energy NASCAR Sprint Cup race, the AAA Texas 500.

According to ESPN, the “contest challenged students to identify a technology or innovation within NASCAR, then explain how Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) professionals came to its design in 90-second videos. Video submissions were judged on technical accuracy, creativity and production quality.”  The winners included

  • First place: Cindy Yen; sophomore – University of Southern California, $10,000
