A Special Opportunity for HS Women in Computing
A unique opportunity for 40 area High School women ages 15-18 to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, an international conference that will be held at the Minneapolis
Convention Center, October 2-5, 2013. Last year the conference had 3600 attendees from 42 countries. This is the first time a high school track is being offered at the conference and it is the first time the conference is held in Minnesota. The goal is to inspire and support young women who have shown some interest in technology, computers and STEM. Applications are required! The students selected will be able to attend at the cost of $75 ( financial assistance can be requested). 30% of the openings are intended for students from underserved populations (students from lower socioeconomic households and from underrepresented minorities). Please read the event flier and visit the event web page for updated and important deadline and application information. The Application Deadline is extended to July 26, 2013.
