The National Center for Women & Information Technology (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.
Open to all US high-school level girls. Apply online at www.aspirations.org.
Additionally, NCWIT will recognize as many as 60 educators this year with the NCWIT Educator Award which comes with $1,000 for professional development and a Dell laptop from sponsor AT&T.
Winners are selected from educators that encourage girls to apply for the Aspirations Award at https://www.aspirations.org/participate/educators. All questions should be directed to Aspirations@ncwit.org.
