Nominations for 2020 are now closed.

The 24 Under 24 Leaders and Innovators in STEAM and Space Awards is an annual awards program presented by The Mars Generation, which serves to recognize young people making an incredible impact and effecting change in the world through science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics (STEAM) and/or space. We believe this next generation of leaders and innovators are primed to make positive changes for a better future, and we want to support those who have demonstrated the ability to do so.

The winners of the 24 Under 24 awards excel not only in academics and the workplace but also in their local communities through volunteer work and outreach initiatives. They embrace elements of STEAM and/or space while also participating in other activities such as athletics, political interests/lobbying, and/or humanitarian or other charitable organizations.
