Hess was honored at the STEM Education Leadership Awards presented by Nasdaq and EverFi. The award recognizes Hess’s significant efforts to improve science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and career readiness for students across North America. Sixteen institutions were honored with this distinction at a ceremony hosted on May 19 at the Nasdaq Marketsite in New York City.

Honorees were selected based on a set of criteria that included the scale and educational impact of their STEM education initiatives as well as unique employee volunteering activities that supplement their programs.

"Our country faces a growing shortage of employees who are skilled in STEM,” said EverFi Founder and CEO Tom Davidson. “The organizations we’re recognizing are committed to igniting student interest in these critical topics and exposing students to the jobs of the 21st century.”

Hess is committed to providing students with the skills and knowledge needed to successfully leverage technology in a responsible and safe way, as well as preparing them to pursue careers in STEM. Through the Succeed 2020 initiative, Hess made a multi-year commitment to education and career preparedness statewide in North Dakota. As part of this program, 1,200 students gained access to hands-on STEM experiences, and more than 4,500 students considered their future opportunities through career fairs. In addition, faculty and staff in North Dakota schools were equipped with training and resources to fortify the support and teaching they provide to their students.

Steve McNally, General Manager, Bakken Asset, said that Hess was honored to receive the Nasdaq and EverFi STEM Leadership Award. “As a company, we value community and we believe that in order for our efforts to be as successful as possible, we must be an active part of the communities in which we operate,” McNally said. “That not only means through financial support, but more deeply by drawing on the talent within each community to help those communities – and states - grow. Succeed 2020 is a fantastic combination of both these endeavors. Our grant continues our commitment to education and to helping best prepare North Dakota youth for their future careers.”
