Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels created the Mr./Miss Math and Science award in 2008 to recognize the Indiana's top high school talent in math and science. The award was developed with input from the Indiana Science Technology Engineering Mathematics Resource Network, the Hoosier Association of Science Teachers, Inc., the Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Science Education Foundation of Indiana, Inc. and the Indiana Department of Education.

All Indiana high school students are eligible to receive the award and can apply online. Nominations from teachers, principals and other school staff members are also accepted. Application criteria includes such information as SAT, ACT and Advanced Placement scores, awards and prizes as well as grades received in math and science courses. Winners, who will be acknowledged as Mr. or Miss Math or Science, respectively, will be selected by a committee of high school math and science teachers, curriculum experts from the Indiana Department of Education, and representatives from the Governor's Office.
