This seems so simple, but it helps us raise more funds!
Local businesses to global brands are investing their marketing dollars to help build this uplifting movement and to help the communities they serve offer the best, most well-rounded education possible to their teens.
As major partners, sponsors, advertisers or donors, or by participating in cause marketing/sales-based fundraising programs, by pooling their resources these corporate citizens make our contests possible.

Contribute to or help raise funds for STEAM Education
The Verge Awards® organization is committed to using our platform to raise funds for and increase awareness of the benefits of STEAM education in public high schools, particularly in our country's most under-served communities.
Through The Verge Fund for Education (501c3), and with the expert insights of more than 400 community foundations across the country, we will invest need-based grants where they will achieve the greatest and most sustainable impact. Grants may be used to help schools extend access to and participation in their already proven successful programs, or help establish new, innovative programs with partner community youth organizations.
And our scholarship program will support individual students with tremendous potential in each of our contest categories, with priority given to individuals with NO prior training! If they demonstrate desire, passion, potential and willingness to work hard - we can help them achieve greatness!
