CONGRATULATIONS 2019 KENTUCKY
NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Honorees
On Thursday, April 18th, 2019, we gathered together with the receipients, tech industry, and academic representatives to celebrate the accomplishments and aspirations of these amazing young women at the Lexington Convention Center. We started with an introduction to the program for those guest unfamiliar from Eva Bradshaw, our NCWIT RAM. The guests were then invited to share in some Noodles and Company pasta, salads, and cookies, while mingling and talking with each other. The high school receipients were provided a sheet of business cards to exchange with one another and the representatives in attendance. We then presented trophies and swag bags, and gathered for a group photo.
As part of the STLP State Championships, we were also invited to recognize the receipients during the large STLP Award Ceremony held in Rupp Arena. A brief overview of the program was provided, and then the receipients were announced by award level and cheered on by several thousand educators, parents, and peers. The award ceremony was aired live on KET.
