On January 19, I had the privilege of attending the award ceremony for the National Center for Women and Information Technology’s (NCWIT) Award for Aspirations in Computing.

At the event, 20 high-school women from around the state were honored for their achievements in technology. They were selected for their computing and IT aptitude, leadership ability, academic history, and plans for post-secondary education.

NCWIT AwardI was completely awestruck at the achievement and drive of these young ladies.

Among these 20 young ladies were:

  • Valedictorians
  • National Science Olympiads
  • Computer programmers
  • Our next generation IT innovators

We have a lot to learn from these young women… The drive, determination, and energy that they approach life with is a model for us all to follow.
