On April 24th IT-oLogy WISE presented the annual National Council of Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) North Carolina Aspirations in Computing Awards. Fifteen young high school women from across the state and a state technology educator were honored at the One Bank of America Conference Center. The event was sponsored by Bank of America and Skookum Digital Works.
The NCWIT NC Affiliate Award for Aspirations in Computing offers competition to generate support and visibility for young women’s participation in computing around the state. Young women at the high-school level are recognized for their computing-related achievements and interests.
Students are selected on their computing and IT aptitude, leadership ability, academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. Recipients receive engraved awards, opportunities for scholarships, internships, research experiences, and other educational and employment opportunities provided by NCWIT member organizations.
