The award highlights women in high school who are active and interested in computing and technology. Recipients are chosen for their commitment and achievements in computing, proven leadership ability, academic performance, and plans for post secondary education.
“It is such an honor to be able to acknowledge this year's NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Award recipients who are all excellent examples of how women can succeed in the Computing field,” said UOG Chief Information Officer Rommel Hidalgo.
