The Champions for Biotechnology Education Awards Gala celebrates outstanding advocacy for, and contributions to, life sciences education in Massachusetts. Each year, MassBioEd honors an organization, an educator, a public advocate, and a school for their commitment to fostering science literacy and advancing life sciences education. We also award a student with a scholarship to be used towards their life sciences field of study. The Educator Award and Student Scholarship Award are supported by the Henri A. Termeer Foundation in honor of Henri A. Termeer and his commitment to scientific discovery and mentorship of aspiring and accomplished scientists. The Champions Gala is MassBioEd’s annual fundraiser, raising funds to support our programs to build a strong and diverse life sciences workforce.

The Joshua Boger Innovative School of the Year Award is supported by the Joshua Boger Family Foundation and named after Joshua Boger to recognize his sustained commitment to excellence in science education. The Joshua Boger Innovative School of the Year Award will be presented at a separate event in Spring 2024 at the chosen school.
