SKILLED Centennial Award

To celebrate our 100th anniversary, S. M. Wilson has partnered with the Missouri School Boards' Association (MSBA) to introduce the SKILLED Centennial Award.

Win $1,000 with an idea that improves your community!


Create a process, lesson, activity or product (herein called the “Project”) that engages younger students with science, technology, engineering, art and/or math (STEAM) in an inspiring way.

Think of a time you were inspired as an elementary student to build or create something. Were you part of a robotics team? Did you design and build a birdhouse? Did you create a Rube Goldberg Machine? Did this experience want to make you learn more about science, technology, engineering, art or math?

Now’s your chance to inspire others in your school, district or community, and win one of our $1,000 grand prizes.

Your challenge is to imagine you have a $500 budget for a process, lesson, activity or product (the “Project”) that engages younger students in your community with STEAM learning.
