-Award Winning Event To Take Place December 11-12, 2017-

(Black PR Wire) The City of Miami Gardens encourages academic excellence from all of its students – hoping that they will broaden their scope for occupations (beginning at the elementary level) in the world of science and engineering. To assist with successfully implementing this process, the City of Miami Gardens will host its Annual Science and Engineering Fair for students with an interest in science. The event, the brain trust of Councilman David Williams Jr., Seat 5, has become one of the beacon projects in the community. Sponsorship opportunities are currently available for those interested in supporting the initiative.

The event itself is set for Monday, December 11, 2017 with the Science and Engineering Fair Competition, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Florida International University Biscayne Bay Campus, located in the Wolfe University Center Ballrooms, 3000 NE 151st Street in North Miami, Florida. The Fair concludes on Tuesday, December 12, 2017, with the Science Fair Awards Presentation Ceremony to be held from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Carol City Senior High, located at 3301 Miami Gardens Drive in Miami Gardens, Florida.

“We are thrilled to host yet another Science and Engineering Fair,” said Councilman David Williams Jr. “This Fair helps expose students to science, engineering, and technology components that will inspire them to seek future endeavors in great, life-changing fields of study.”

Students from 22 schools throughout Miami Gardens are preparing now for their winning projects. Participants from the innovative Beginnings in Science (iBiS) Programs include: Golden Glades Elementary School, Crestview Elementary School, Scott Lake Elementary School, Rainbow Park Elementary School, Parkview Elementary School, Carol City Elementary School, Hibiscus Elementary School, Barbara Hawkins Elementary School, and Carol City High School.

Over 100 students from these schools are expected to participate for cash prizes ranging from $25 – $750 for the most unique project. Judges from various fields will critique student projects and the top five students will be recognized with cash prizes.

With a population of over 107,000, the City of Miami Gardens is the third largest city in Miami-Dade County, covering twenty square miles. Its expansive city hall is the only Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design public facility in America. With over a decade of leadership under its belt, the City is filled with world-class universities, show-stopping entertainment, thriving businesses, exceptional restaurants and shops, and best of all, caring neighborhoods that reflect unity in the community. With stellar events, like Jazz in the Gardens, the City of Miami Gardens offers fine cultural enrichment, planting seeds to meet resident needs and continuously cultivating possibilities.

The City of Miami Gardens is currently seeking sponsors for the Science and Engineering Fair.  Sponsorship levels include Gold Sponsors ($2,500), Silver Sponsors ($1,500), and Bronze Sponsors ($500).
