Festival Ambassadors

Ambassador Program

We are NOT currently accepting Ambassador group applications.  

Ambassadors of the USA Science & Engineering Festival are a group of K-12 students, along with their parents and teachers, who support the Festival’s mission by spreading the word about Festival programs and events in their communities. The Ambassador Program (formerly the X-STEM School Program) provides kids the opportunity to work together and gain valuable leadership, organizational and social skills, all while helping to increase public awareness of STEM in their own community.

If you are a former participant in the X-STEM School Program, you must re-register your group to participate as Festival Ambassadors.  Participation in the Ambassador program is available to students within the United States only.

If you have questions about the Ambassador Program, please contact [email protected].

Ambassador Roles and Benefits

Help spread the word about Festival programs and events by sharing on social media, hanging posters, and distributing flyers in your community.

Ambassadors earn community service hours and FREE admission to select Festival events.
