Conference Wants Girls Who Are Into Math, Science

High school and middle school girls who think they might be interested in a career involving math and science should take note: There’s a conference in Spokane just for you.

“Expanding Your Horizons” Math and Science Careers Conference is March 22. This event offers sixth- through 12th-grade girls (along with their parents and teachers) the opportunity to meet professional women in a huge variety of careers. You’ll also get to participate in hands-on demonstrations related to those careers.

The registration deadline is nearing; it’s March 4. For information, see your school counselor or call 245-3518.

Mind money: Washington Water Power’s new Mindpower Generation Scholarship is taking applications through March 1.

The aim of the Mindpower scholarship is to help and encourage students who don’t qualify for academic scholarships or financial aid to seek higher education in the Inland Northwest. The scholarships are open to students with a 2.5 gpa or better.

Six students will receive $1,500 scholarships. To be eligible, you must live in Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho or Sanders County, Mont., and be accepted to a two- or four-year college or university in one of those areas.

Get an application from your high school career counselors or from any WWP office. Winners will be notified by April 15.
