Kearney has been named the top STEM City in Nebraska.

It joins the ranks of major cities in other states, like Indianapolis, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Knoxville, Tennessee, all standing out for an “exceptional dedication to advancements and education” in science, technology, engineering and math.

The ranking was determined by data scientists at Insurify, the insurance quotes comparison site that created the award. Kearney was put up against other cities in the state and selected based on proportion of residents in STEM-based careers, STEM programs at colleges and graduate schools according to Niche and the best cities for women in tech according to SmartAsset.
