The NSBE Baltimore Metropolitan Area Chapter Anniversary and Awards Banquet seeks to broaden the educational opportunities for deserving students who, by virtue of their academic and extracurricular achievement, demonstrate excellence in pursuing studies in STEM. At this banquet, two chapter awards and one student award are presented; the Collegiate Chapter Excellence Award, the NSBE Jr. Chapter Excellence Award, and the William T. Batten Leadership Award.

The winners of these awards must have strong leadership and communication skills and possess the desire to positively impact their community. These awards are for Middle/High School NSBE Jr. and collegiate chapters and members. NSBE BMAC also recognizes and awards its members and corporate sponsors for the impact in the community. Student and corporate attendees have the unique opportunity to showcase their projects and promote their programs at this event. It is also a great opportunity for STEM professionals from across the Baltimore Metropolitan area to network and discover new connections with students, potential employees, other professionals and potential partnerships.
