For the past four years the Iseman Foundation has given out the Butwin Elias Science and Technology award at E. L. Meyers High school in Wilkes-Barre PA. This year, in addition to the BEST award, we are offering the new Caffrey Welles Arts Award and we need your help! More details on the awards can be found here . A Times-Leader article on the BEST award can be found here

If you donate you will help kids pursue their passions in either STEM or the Arts (or maybe both). Last year the Wilkes-Barre Area School District drastically reduced both the arts department and the technical education department. This was a cost savings measure that is actively hurting the students that attend these schools. The future of public schools across the nation is uncertain. Your donation can help to encourage kids pursue their passions regardless of any upcoming policy changes.
 
Any donation is greatly appreciated. If you donate just $50 you can sponsor a participation award for one student. This sends the very clear message that applying yourself and pushing for recognition can be very rewarding. This small donation can spark their interest in a field that they pursue for the rest of their lives!

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or are interested in starting your own scholarship! 

Cheers,

Adam Iseman

We received 14 applicants for the new Arts Award and 12 for this years BEST award. This is an amazing turn out and I'm really excited that we inspired so much creativity and hard work from the students!

I bumped up the amount that we are hoping to raise for this year since we got so many more applicants than I was expecting. If you donate to support this award you get to vote on the winners. Anything is appreciated and will help to encourage more students to apply next year. Thanks in advance!
