Dear Techbridge Girls friend,
We are thrilled to share that Techbridge Girls was named the recipient of $100,000 and the grand prize winner of the 2018 UL Innovative Education Award (ULIEA).
The annual award is presented to five non-profits throughout the U.S. and Canada who advance E-STEM, sustainable communities and youth empowerment.

“Techbridge Girls is honored to be recognized by the UL Innovative Education Award, and we’re excited to leverage this award to better the future of girls across the country through high-quality STEM education opportunities,” said Techbridge Girls CEO Nikole Collins-Puri.
ULIEA is an annual award presented by UL, in partnership with the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE),
to non-profit organizations that have made a difference in their communities through their work to advance environmental education via STEM principals (E-STEM). This year, applicants from 33 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces applied for the award.

In addition to receiving a monetary award of $100,000, we will be attending a leadership summit in August,
where we will work with the network of likeminded ULIEA alumni and professionals from UL and NAAEE to further our cause.
