227 Students From Around The World To Participate In Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced that 227 students from around the world will attend the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy (HLCA) this year.  The unique scholarship program uses interactive technology and science-oriented workshops and team exercises to teach children of Honeywell employees between the ages of 16-18 leadership skills in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Activities will be delivered in fun and innovative ways that bring STEM studies to life. The students will meet scientists, engineers and former astronauts, who will help reinforce core leadership competencies and share their first-hand professional experiences.  Students also will engage in interactive challenges such as: designing, building and testing their own rockets; participating in simulated astronaut training, shuttle missions and a moon walk; and conducting DNA extraction experiments on fruit.  To familiarize themselves with the program, students can access an online HLCA social media community site before, during, and after the program.

Honeywell will run HLCA over two consecutive week-long programs from February 23 to March 8, 2013, at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL.

"We are pleased to select another impressive group of students to the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy," said Tom Buckmaster, president, Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the corporate citizenship organization.  "Our goal is to continue to develop a new generation of leaders, engineers, and scientists who can address the challenges of tomorrow.  What better way than to offer this exciting opportunity to these exceptional students."

This year, the students come from 30 countries and 26 U.S. states and territories.

Since its launch in 2010, Honeywell, in partnership with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, has awarded more than 850 scholarships to students after a rigorous application and review processes based on academic achievement and community involvement.  All junior and senior level high school children of full-time Honeywell employees are eligible to apply.  Financial contributions from Honeywell employees help fund the scholarships, including tuition, meals, accommodations and program materials.
