TWIST | Target Women In Science and Technology
The TWIST EPIC Awards honor young women in the Twin Cities for their dedication to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These young women demonstrate Engagement, Passion, Innovation, and Curiosity within these fields and TWIST encourages them to continue pursuing this path.

All of the selected students will receive a certificate of recognition presented by Target's Chief Information Officer and two students will receive a trophy and be honored for their outstanding achievements in the STEM fields.
In addition, each selected student will have the opportunity to participate in Target's Science & Technology day, mentorship from Target team members, job shadowing, and other networking events in order to encourage personal growth and build meaningful experiences that will help in future endeavors.
