The US 2020 City Competition

The US 2020 City Competition
September 3, 2014 US2020 PHL

Sponsored by Cisco Systems, Inc., the US2020 City Competition challenged communities to develop plans to dramatically increase the scale and quality of mentorship between professionals working in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and students underrepresented in the sciences. The seven winning cities — announced at the White House Science Fair — will seed STEM mentoring movements in communities across the country. As announced by President Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative, winning cities from across the country will share over $1 million in resources from US2020, based on their plans to significantly increase STEM mentoring for girls, low-income youth, and students of color.
