A state society of the National Society of Professional Engineers
HSPE Educational Foundation
We are pleased to announce that the HSPE Educational Foundation is now an IRS approved 501c(3) organizaton. The Foundation's mission is to provide support for educational programs such as MATHCOUNTS to further opportunities for Hawaii's future engineers. The Foundation also provides partial scholarships to college-bound students majoring in engineering at accredited institutions as funds are available.
Once again we are pleased to announce that the Hawaiian Electric Company has provided a generous donation of $10,000 to support the 2015 Hawaii MATHCOUNTS competition. With the generous support of corporate sponsors such as the Hawaiian Electric Company, the Hawaii MATHCOUNTS program is providing today’s students with the foundation for success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers.
MATHCOUNTS is a national enrichment club and competition program that promotes middle school mathematics achievement through grassroots involvement in every U.S. state and territory.
MATHCOUNTS is one of the country's largest and most successful education partnerships involving volunteers, educators, industry sponsors and students. President Barack Obama and former Presidents George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald W. Reagan have all recognized MATHCOUNTS in White House ceremonies. The MATHCOUNTS program has also received two White House citations as an outstanding private sector initiative. Particularly exciting for our Mathletes® were the hour-long ESPN programs on each of the National Competitions from 2003-2005.
The 2015 National Sponsors of MATHCOUNTS are Raytheon Company, Northrop Grumman Foundation, U.S. Department of Defense, National Society of Professional Engineers, Phillips 66, Texas Instruments Incorporated, 3Mgives, CNA Foundation, Art of Problem Solving, and NextThought. MATHCOUNTS was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and the CNA Foundation.
