NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing: Applications open now!

NCWIT is an organization committed to getting more women in computing, across K-12, college, and industry. Every year, they have NCWIT awards that recognize women for interest in computing and give them an additional community to support them and opportunities for growth. At last year's NCWIT summit, I had the chance to meet a bunch of the award winners, and they were all bursting with enthusiasm for computer science.

If you know high school females with an interest in computing (but not necessarily an expertise!), encourage them to apply here.

In addition, NCWIT is now recognizing educators, so you can nominate any teachers, parents, or coaches that are helping the world get more women in computing.

If you'd like to spread the word, check out NCWIT's sharing kit.

More women in computing = more people in computing!
