The University of Maryland's Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering (CMSE), the Black Engineers Society (BES), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and LSAMP STEM Community hosted its 41st Annual Student Recognition Celebration on April 3, 2022 at the Hall College Park Longhouse.

We celebrated the accomplishments and incredible achievements of CMSE students. We showcased the "good stuff" as we celebrated the BEST of the BEST through our Student Recognition Celebration. It was a great time to celebrate CMSE student academic achievement and return to an in-person celebration. The celebration was limited to students only due to continued COVID concerns; but the event was recorded for family, friends, and others to view and to share the experience as well.

The College Park Longhouse is a Great Venue. The 41st Annual Student Recognition Celebration was a time to walk the red carpet for the "Awards Ceremony," hear some "Golden Nuggets" from CMSE alumni, enjoy delicious food, have fun with each other, and win some GREAT PRIZES!!

All student awardees must register by midnight on March 25, 2022. Register through eventbrite.

The first 25 awardees who register will be entered into a SPECIAL PRIZE drawing to receive one of two $50.00 Amazon Gift Cards at the end of the 41st Annual Student Recognition Ceremony on April 3, 2022.
