NCWIT Aspirations in Computing

The NCWIT Aspirations in Computing (AiC) High School Award celebrates the computing talents of female, genderqueer, and non-binary students in grades 9-12. It inspires them to pursue their interests in technology. The award has recognized over 25,000 students since 2007. Applicants are evaluated on their computing skills, activities, leadership, perseverance, and future ambitions. The Southern Utah Aspirations in Computing (SUAIC) program is an extension of AiC. It focuses on more than 20 counties in Southern Utah and Nevada, with the aim of raising awareness about computing and supporting young women interested in computing careers, particularly in rural and remote areas.
