Description:
BDPA Washington DC chapter, founded May 1978, is currently the 5th largest chapter in the nation. One reason for their rapid growth in recent years is the strong Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program available to K-12 students in the DC area. One aspect of the SITES program is the annual High School Computer Competition (HSCC) Program. The goal of this exciting training and annual competition is to increase interest of African American youth in the information technology industry.

BDPA Washington DC is now recruiting 8th thru 12th grade students to enroll in their Youth Technology HSCC program . The program provides an environment where high sc hool students compete on an academic level and showcase their technical skills and creativity. Selected students receive several weeks of introductory and advanced training in computer technologies such as HTML, Java, and relational databases. Participating students also gain essential skills such as presentation delivery and teamwork.

At the conclusion of program, selected students will represent BDPA Washington DC in the national competition taking place on August 6-9, 2008 in Atlanta, GA. The competition team will enjoy an all expense paid trip to the conference with an opportunity to win college scholarships. The students from the Washington DC team won the silver medal in 2007 national competition, after taking the bronze medal they prior year. As a result these youngsters won $12,500 in scholarships over the past two years. The chapter wants to prepare students to win more scholarships and advance their career as Stephanie Lampkin did in the past.

Interview for the 2008 HSCC program take place on both February 16 and February 23 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. All students are encouraged to use our online scheduler to confirm date and time for an interview.
