ABOUT THE EVENT
The LaSalle Street Trading Tech Awards brings members of the trading, financial, brokerage, property management, legal, and accounting communities together in support of local Scouting. Born from the iconic LaSalle Street Dinner Dance this event celebrates and honors accomplishments in the area of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) that are achieved through the Trading Tech program and partners.
WHO IT BENEFITS
The evening benefits the Scouts and volunteers in the Pathway to Adventure Council (PTAC). In addition to funding new STEM programs like Trading Tech 300 and STEM Scouts, proceeds benefit the traditional Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs, and co-educational Venturing and Exploring programs.
The Pathway to Adventure Council serves over 21,000 young men and women, includes more than 8,000 adult volunteers, and partners with over a thousand area schools and organizations.
In 2016, the Harlan Award was established to celebrate Scouts who earn five merit badges or more through Trading Tech 300. The award was named after

When Lothian approached Kelly Loeffler, a long-time supporter of Scouting, with the idea she suggested naming it after the Fearless Girl Statue near the NYSE. Thank you, Kelly, for naming it so wisely. We hope to raise many more fearless girls just like you.
Each scholarship will be for $250. A donation to this fund will turbocharge leadership development for girls joining the Scouts BSA program. This will help Scouts BSA as well as the Cub Scout program. And 100 girls will have this industry to thank for helping them develop their leadership skills.
