Congratulations to the 15 talented Minnesota Aspirations for Women in Computing 2014 Award winners and runners-up! Four Minnesota students were also selected as national level runners-up through the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT). They placed in the top 15 percent of approximately 2,600 applicants from across the country. In addition, congrats to Wayzata High School teacher Tika Kude, who was selected to receive NCWIT’s national educator award.
Last year, Advance IT Minnesota and Maverick Software Consulting partnered with NCWIT and local sponsors to begin hosting the awards program, encouraging the computing aspirations of young high school women and introducing them to leadership opportunities in the field. Winners from across the state were selected based on their achievements and community involvement in computers and technology.
We’re proud of the caliber of these talented young women and support them in their pursuit of tech careers - and invite them to join us as future Mavericks!
