We receive thousands of applications and it takes hundreds of people to help us select the winners. The first application review period takes place from November 12 - November 18. A second review period will take place from November 19 - December 3 for those applications that were not reviewed in the first round. Reviewers typically spend 4-6 hours to review applications. Applications are read and scored online at your own pace and detailed instructions are provided. Register here to become a reviewer! 

Note: parents and teachers/counselors/mentors of applicants may not review applications.


Local Affiliate Award programs are in need of committee members for publicity, judging, and event planning. This is a great short-term volunteer opportunity for corporate volunteers and professional associations. Connect with an established award program in your community and register here to help out.


If there isn't a program in your community, we will work with you to start one. Contact aspirations@ncwit.org for details.
