IT-oLogy has worked closely with the National Center of Women and IT (NCWIT) for many years. One of the many successful NCWIT programs is Aspirations in Computing Awards (AiC) AiC is a recognition program for high school girls at both national and local levels. The Charlotte WISE program is excited to lead the local NC AiC for the sixth consecutive year. Last year more than 2800 high school women from across the nation applied for the award. Two of the 35 national winners were from North Carolina and eighteen more NC women were recognized at the local level celebration.
The NCWIT AiC Award honors high school women who are active and interested in computing and technology, and encourages them to pursue their passions. This multi-tiered competition includes recognition at the national level (sponsored by Bank of America) and at the local level (sponsored by Microsoft). Applications for the 2016 Award for Aspirations in Computing are open from September 1 to October 26, 2015 (8:00 p.m. EDT).
Share the information and encourage high school women to apply. It is a wonderful opportunity that provides a life long network of support. Find out more at www.aspirations.org/participate/high-school.
