ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Three school districts from upstate New York are receiving $5,000 apiece for coming up with innovative ways to prepare students for careers in high-tech jobs.

Receiving the awards Tuesday afternoon were Coxsackie-Athens in the Hudson Valley, Queensbury Union Free in Warren County and Spencerport, near Rochester.

The “Be the Change for Kids” Innovation Awards were presented in Albany by the New York State School Boards Association and SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

More than 30 schools across the state entered to win the awards, which foster ways to engage students in science, technology, engineering and math programs known collectively as STEM.

The winners were selected by faculty and staff members at SUNY Poly, which funded the $15,000 awards split between the three school districts.
