The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) has started accepting applications for its annual “Aspirations in Computing” award. This is a great opportunity for high school aged girls who have done computing projects or activities to apply for an award. The national winners will receive $500, a laptop, and a trip to attend the Bank of America Technology Showcase and awards ceremony in Charlotte, NC.
Please pass the word along and encourage any female high schoolers you know to consider applying if they are interested in computing. The deadline for entries is October 31, 2012.
For more information, see the NCWIT website.
