Alabama: Northern

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Alabama is proud to host the Award for Aspirations in Computing in Northern Alabama! 
Each Fall, award recipients are selected for their aptitude and interest in IT and computing, solid leadership ability, good academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. Awardees are invited to a banquet dinner each Spring with their parents and teachers. 
The 2021 Aspirations award in North Alabama will be held virtually on May 8, 2021 (Saturday). The Aspirations virtual celebration will honor all Winners, Honorable Mention, and Rising Star recipients. The event will also honor our teacher awardees who receive the NCWIT Educator Award and the Dr. Albert Lilly Educator Award.
