THE STORY:

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation wrote -

BDPA Chicago plans to give out $2,000 scholarships each of the five (5) students that earn a spot on the city's national team students competing at the 30th annual BDPA High School Computer Competition (HSCC) championships being held August 2015 in Washington DC. The mission of the BDPA Chicago chapter is to support local information technology (IT) professionals and increase the number of historically under-represented persons of color in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas.

This Crowdrise Project seeks to raise $10,000 to fully fund these college scholarships for the 2015 HSCC team and send the 2015 HSCC team to Competition.  Our hope is that we can find 10 people to join our fundraising team.

BDPA Chicago became the 14th chapter in the nation when it began on March 15, 1986. The chapter has a potent legacy in BDPA history that includes 'BDPA Chapter of the Year' honors in 1991-1993, 2000, 2005 and 2013. BDPA Chicago students won the national HSCC championship in 1994 and 2006.

WHAT IS HIGH SCHOOL COMPUTER COMPETITION?

HSCC is a computer instructional program available to Chicago students in grades 8 through 12. Participating students receive quality instruction in basic computer skills, computer programming languages, website development, database design public speaking and career development. BDPA student competitions and projects are an important key to help grow a passion in these young people for science, technology and mathematics!

Please MAKE A DONATION or JOIN OUR TEAM so that we can make a difference with the young people in Chicago-land.
