We’re excited to share with you an annual award offering career inspiring opportunities for female students in your Minnesota high school who have technology interests and aspirations. Young women in grades 9-12 are invited to apply for the fifth annual Minnesota Aspirations in Computing Awards, hosted by Advance IT Minnesota and prominent local partners.

Last year, 30 winners and runners-up from across the state were honored with the award and an additional 22 young women received certificates of distinction. Overall honoree recognition increased more than 50% from the previous year. One Minnesota winner also received national recognition.

Students can start their applications for the award.
