BEEHIVE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY STUDENTS HONORED BY NATIONAL CENTER FOR WOMEN AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Sandy, Utah—Beehive Science and Technology Academy students Kim Drennan and Bailey Ellis were given awards by the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) during the last weekend in March.  Sahana Kargi was also presented with an honorable mention by the organization.  The students participated in NCWIT’s Aspirations in Computing competition.

 

     To apply for the awards, students were required to submit information online.  According to NCWIT’s website, “Award recipients are selected based on their aptitude and aspirations in technology and computing; leadership ability; academic history; and plans for post-secondary education.”  Students from Beehive competed against other students from Northern Utah (there was also a Southern Utah competition).

     According to NCWIT’s website, “The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing builds a talent pool for the growing technical workforce and helps academic and corporate organizations celebrate diversity in computing by honoring young women at the high-school level for their computing-related achievements and interests.”
