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.

Trading Tech partners are instrumental in furthering STEM opportunities for Scouts by conducting merit badge clinics in their offices. The impact made by our partners at the end of 2018 will allow 559 Scouts to earn more than 626 merit badges through the efforts of 18 firms.

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.

HARLAN AWARD:

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 lifelong friend of local Scouting, Harlan TenPas, who spent his career reminding everyone in the financial industry supporting the Scouting movement is an investment in the future talent of our communities.


Join us to congratulate this year’s class of Harlan award recipients:

FEARLESS GIRL NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING FUND

The Fearless Girl National Youth Leadership Training Fund, also created by John Lothian, is new in 2018. It will send 100 girls to the Scouts National Youth Leadership Training (“NYLT”) camp, which is a weeklong experience teaching the girls how Scouting works while developing their leadership skills. Lothian’s goal in starting the fund is to foster exponential growth of girls in the movement by bringing motivated, trained and enthusiastic leaders back to their units.

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.
