Tallahassee, Fla., February 26, 2013 - Central Florida's highest-achieving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students joined their peers from across the state in Orlando to be honored during the 2013 Sunshine State Scholars program. The two-day awards and recruitment event celebrated the accomplishments of these elite students and provided a unique venue for Florida's colleges and universities to recruit their talents.
