The 2023 Stand Up for STEM High School Individual Award is being presented to:
Zoe Chandler, High School Junior, Midlothian Heritage High School, Midlothian ISD, Midlothian.

Zoe Chandler was awarded the Corporate Stand Up for STEM Award for her outstanding efforts to promote STEM mentorship to girls interested in pursuing careers in STEM, increasing the diversity of those pursuing STEM careers, balancing the ratio of girls to boys on the FIRST robotics team, and developing girls who want to enter the STEM education pipeline.

Her position as president of the Heritage High School award-winning FIRST robotics team has encouraged girls to take on STEM-driven leadership positions. She actively recruits girls, places them in leadership positions and empowers them.

The awards will be presented on Friday, December 1, 2023, at the 7th annual Texas Women and Girls in STEM Summit hosted virtually by the Texas Girls Collaborative Project.
