CBS4 and PDC Energy announced today that applications are being accepted for the 2021-2022 FUTURE LEADERS program recognizing Colorado high school students excelling in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics.) The program is open to students across Colorado.

“This will be our fifth year recognizing Future Leaders,” said General Manager Tim Wieland. “Last year, CBS4 and PDC Energy recognized eight outstanding Colorado high school students who excel in everything from marine biology to engineering, search engines and aerospace. We can’t wait to learn more about this year’s nominees and share the stories of the winners.”

Teachers, parents, mentors, and others are encouraged to nominate students who they believe will be Colorado’s future STEM leaders.

Nominations are accepted on an ongoing basis from now through April 2022. One student will be selected each month to receive this special recognition award that includes $1,000 and a student profile on Denver’s CBS4.

STEM studies may include but are not limited to the fields of biology, chemistry, computer, and information technology science, geosciences, life sciences, mathematical sciences, physics and astronomy, anthropology, ecology, economics, robotics, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, and astrophysics.

Nominations should include basic information about the student as well as information about the student’s STEM field of study/focus, and any extraordinary circumstances/obstacles the student has had to overcome in order to pursue his/her/their STEM studies. Nominate future leaders at
