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 2019 will allow 706 Scouts to earn more than 773 merit badges through the efforts of 20 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 BSA 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.


Harlan award recipients will be announced in September 2019!
