Subject: Take the Lead! STLP Engineer/Ambassador applications being accepted until 11/20
We are thrilled to announce an incredible opportunity for our 9-12th grade STLP student leaders: Applications for the 2023-2024 STLP Engineer/Ambassador Team are being accepted until November 20th.
Do you know any students who embody the following description? “The ideal STLP Engineer/Ambassador is an exceptional student leader adept at harnessing technology to design, create, and collaborate on intricate technical and leadership challenges. STLP Engineers/Ambassadors are not only highly skilled in the technical realm but also possess an innate drive for excellence, coupled with essential interpersonal abilities to showcase advanced leadership. They are also deeply committed to being responsible digital citizens and lifelong learners.”
If you believe you have a standout candidate in mind for the STLP E/A team, we urge you to share this information with them immediately and direct them to the application process and the comprehensive STLP E/A Info page.
Selected students will have the privilege of joining a student advisory group with the Kentucky Department of Education’s Office of Education Technology. Additionally, they will play a pivotal role in providing technical support and leadership at the spring KySTE event and will take a main leadership role in producing the special 30th Anniversary celebration at the STLP State Championship. Districts will receive stipends to support expenses related to participating at these events, too.
Please note that STLP Engineer Candidates must be in 9th through 12th grade. Each school is welcome to submit up to two candidates for the Engineer/Ambassador Team. Previous STLP E/A Team members are not required to reapply and are already included in the 2023-2024 team roster.
We kindly request that you carefully review the STLP E/A application packet/rubric and ensure that all applications are submitted no later than the specified deadline. You can find all the details at https://stlp.education.ky.gov/engineers.
