AIHA Donates $5,000 to Science Olympiad

The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) announced today that it is sponsoring a contribution of $5,000 to Science Olympiad, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of K-12 science education, increasing interest in science, and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by students and teachers.

"We are pleased to have the opportunity to make this contribution to the Science Olympiad and support its efforts on behalf of STEM education," said AIHA President Donald J. Hart, Ph.D, CIH. "Today’s science students are the future of our profession, and we hope that this donation will help some of our most promising future leaders."

Fulfilling a desire to bring excitement to science competitions, Dr. Gerard J. Putz and John C. Cairns founded the Science Olympiad in 1983. After successful tournaments were held in Michigan and Delaware, the program began to attract interest from school districts all around the country and eventually became one of the premier science competitions in the nation.

"Career education is a vital component of Science Olympiad, and we look forward to reaching middle school and high school students across America who are interested in industrial hygiene and workplace safety through our competitions," said Putz, who is also president of Science Olympiad. "We are grateful for AIHA's financial and volunteer support and welcome a lasting partnership."

Science Olympiad has members in all 50 states and Canada, totaling more than 14,500 actively participating K-12 schools.
