  • Looking for Girls Who Have Aspirations in Computing

    The National Center for Women & Information Technology is looking for high school women who are interested in computing to apply for the Aspiration in Computing Award. There are U.S. National and Regional competitions. Apply now. The deadline is April 12. Don't be shy!!! They need applicants.

    If your high school has lame (or no) computing offerings, and you are interested, apply anyway. Maybe you have ideas for how to get your high school up-to-speed in the 21st century.

    The NCWIT site says:

    "The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing honors young women at the high-school level for their computing-related achievements and interests. Awardees are selected for their computing and IT aptitude, leadership ability, academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing offers both a national and local "affiliate" competitions to generate support and visibility for women's participation in communities nationwide."
