Calling all creative coders and tech savvy young women

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

  • National winners receive:
  • $500 cash award, a laptop computer
  • Trip for two to the National award ceremony in Charlotte, NC March 15, 2014

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.
