Award Spotlight - The Newcomer Helping Hand Award
This award is sponsored by Newcomer Supply Inc. and consist of a $1500.00 grant. This is a new award for the NSH it has only been given out once so far, last year was the first year it was given and Jean Mitchell NSH's Region IV director was its first recipient.  Jean knows first-hand what it's like to help others internationally she was able to travel to Botswana, Africa in August 2013 as part of an ASCP Laboratory Mission to assess and teach good histotechnology practices in Botswana.
This grant is intended to:
Support national and or international histology education outreach efforts.  Increase the quality and expertise of histology educational opportunities for student groups with limited or deteriorated access to educational facilities and educators.  Affect efforts to recruit future generations of histotechnologists and promote the study of histology.   Provide needed educational supplies or equipment.
This grant can be used to support any educational opportunity such as hosting high school students in your laboratory or at a STEM event.  Nominate yourself if you are planning such an event or a colleague if you know that they have been involved in educational opportunities in the past and are planning to do so in the future at the following link http://nsh.org/scholarships-awards/advocacy/service%20awards?nid=2930  This is just one way that this award can be used.
Helping others both nationally and internationally learn about histology can be a really fun experience.  We host students yearly in our lab and it is an exhausting but very rewarding experience.  Getting our young students interested in science is in my opinion is a really worthy cause especially if I can do that by teaching them about histology.
