During Motorsports Awareness Month, Athena Racing is accepting applications from female high school students for its inaugural 2019-20 all-female race team. Applications are due by midnight on Sept. 30, 2019

Athena Racing offers STEM education on the race track proving the theories taught in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math classes. This unique program will give 10 team members an insiders look into all of the STEM-related careers in the automotive industry. 

“We are excited to be offering this opportunity to ten young ladies. The possibilities that will now be offered to them will open doors that were once closed. In these male-dominated careers, it is not easy to be the only woman in the room. We are working towards leveling the playing field and showing these young ladies that you can be a smart, beautiful woman who loves cars, racing, wrenching,” said Loxley Browne, Athena Racing executive director.

This Olympian-like training program covers 10 education tracks: driving instruction, mechanics, safety, leadership, entrepreneurship, marketing, photography, public speaking, wellness, and etiquette. Similar to Scouting’s Eagle Scout badge requirements; the 10 team members will master these tracks during their one-year of study. Experts from racing and business will teach the team providing insights and training in their specialty.

A unique extracurricular program, Athena Racing is the first all-female high school auto racing team. Athena’s goal is to create learning experiences and opportunities for young women that increase their confidence and inspire them to pursue their passion in a STEM-driven world. Based in San Marcos, CA, the team will race in California, Arizona, and Nevada. The full-ride scholarship valued at $50,000 provided to all ten teammates will cover all of their costs of training, racing, and travel.

Applications are due by midnight on Sept. 30, 2019. Female, high school students can apply at athenaracing.org
