21CF partners with PepsiCo to launch ‘The Search for Hidden Figures’ contest, empowering young women to pursue STEM careers

To celebrate the release of “Hidden Figures,” 20th Century Fox’s upcoming film following three female African American mathematicians during the 1960’s Space Race, 21st Century Fox has teamed with PepsiCo to launch “The Search for Hidden Figures,” a contest encouraging young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The contest asks high-school and college students, as well as professionals, to answer essay questions and provide video submissions about the importance of STEM to themselves and the world. More than $200,000 in scholarships and other awards will be granted to the 12 winners, and more will receive membership to the New York Academy of Sciences and other prizes. “Hidden Figures” stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe and more. Pharrell Williams served as composer and producer on the film, which will open in theaters on Jan. 6, 2017.
