CHICAGO, Ill. – ComEd is back with its annual STEM program, the ComEd EV Rally, for young women in Illinois. The competition challenges teen girls to build and race electric-powered go-carts while exploring career pathways in STEM. 

This year, ComEd is increasing the number of participants to 45, who will work with women from ComEd to build an electric vehicle (EV). The program will culminate with a race at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago on Saturday, July 29. 

Every participant will receive a $2,000 scholarship upon completion of the program. Applications are available now and open to any female Illinois resident between the ages of 13 and 18. 

ComEd is committed to increasing the number of women and people of color in the STEM fields and is excited to inspire the next generation of the STEM workforce.
