I wanted to help spread the word about an amazing award for high school girls in computer science. Many FIRST girls win on the affiliate and national level, please encourage any techie girls on your team. As a sophomore, I was a National Winner in 2011 and it was an absolutely amazing experience. Clearly the prizes are awesome but as a winner you also join a great group of determined young women who network together for opportunities, college, internships and beyond!

The deadline for applications 11:59 PM on October 31, 2012, so please apply!
