Nominate, celebrate Colorado high school students passionate about science

The process has begun to nominate Colorado high school students who excel in science subjects for the 2022-2023 Future Leaders Program. 

Adults who support the high school student such as teachers, mentors and parents, may nominate students through an application on the CBS Colorado website. 

After six years of the program, however, this is the first time students can nominate themselves. An award of $1,000 and a profile on news channel CBS4 will be awarded to six students across Colorado. 

According to the news release, science subjects include biology, chemistry, computer and information technology science, geosciences, life sciences, mathematical sciences, physics and astronomy, anthropology, ecology, economics, robotics, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, aerospace engineering, chemical engineering and astrophysics.

Applications are accepted now through April 2023, and can be found under the tab “Future Leaders” at
