A Great opportunity for our young women students!

The National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) sponsors an award for “Aspirations in Computing” each year.  Deadline for application is Sunday, November 2nd, but start early – see instructions below.

You can win $500 cash, a free laptop, and a trip. And, if you are selected, you also have a chance to win college scholarships.  Your application also enters you in the local Washington State Competition.  Over 10 Garfield students have won in the past two years, receiving a beautiful glass plaque and generous gift bag from local sponsors!

This award is about your aspirations in computing and technology. You don’t have to be an expert or even have done any programming or built websites yet. They are looking for young women who are interested in the field.  The application asks about your interests and has a few short essay questions, plus you’ll need a recommendation from a teacher or counselor.  I encourage all of our Garfield women who are in computer science classes or have an interest to consider applying for this award!

** To start you need to create an account/profile via this Registration Page  then you can apply on our Washington state page here Deadline is Sunday  November 2nd.
