NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing Starting Again

I’m a big fan of the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing program. This ncwit aic logoprogram recognizes high school young women for their interest and aptitude in technology.  Aspirations in Computing currently offers over 300K in scholarships for young women in computing. You can learn more at aspirations.org.
Aspirations in Computing is a talent development initiative designed to increase female participation in technology careers by providing encouragement, visibility, community, leadership opportunities, scholarships, and internships to aspiring technically inclined young women.  Since 2007, NCWIT has inducted more than 2,500 young women into the Aspirations in Computing community and is helping to usher these women into technology careers.
Applications are open 9/15-10/31 at www.aspirationsaward.org.  You can request a poster for your school or organization at:  www.ncwit.org/aicposterrequest I’ve requested a poster for my computer lab. Hoping to get one of my students recognized for her interests in  computing.
