Funds raised at the Distinguished Citizen Awards Dinner will benefit the Boy Scouts of America’s science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. The Boy Scouts of America has enhanced STEM content in every facet of Scouting from summer camp to the pinewood derby, by developing programs that explore the STEM principles behind familiar Scouting activities.

The BSA’s STEM initiative is designed to give Scouts an opportunity to explore relevant skills and experiences and to be recognized for their achievements. The BSA’s aim is to expose youth to new opportunities and help them develop the STEM skills critical for the competitive world marketplace. Further funds will be raised at the event for Scouts in underserved areas of New Jersey to experience summer camp and enjoy the Scouting program.
