North Carolina Program to Recognize Exemplary STEM Schools

North Carolina has launched an initiative to publicly recognize STEM schools and school-based programs. The state education department recently released an application guide and although there are no financial incentives, participation incentives include public recognition and improved program practices. Applicants are rated as "early," "developing," "prepared," or "model" and those rated as "prepared" and "model" receive recognition after approval from the state board of education.
