2022 Fundraiser Update

Reidar Bjorhovde AwardYour Contributions Made Our 2022 Fundraiser a Success!

Thank you to everyone who joined the Nucor/Bjorhovde Challenge and helped us exceed our $50,000 fundraising goal, raising a total of over $63,000 (and counting!) to establish a new, permanent award program: The Reidar Bjorhovde Outstanding Young Professional Award. Over the course of just a few weeks, the Education Foundation raised $63,320. Quite a testament not only to Reidar’s life and legacy, but to the amazing generosity of our donors. We are honored to continue doing what he so loved: mentoring.

While our online campaign for this program has ended, it’s not too late to contribute! If you are interested in supporting this particular program, please contact Maria Mnookin at or 312.758.7802.
