Northern Illinois NCWIT Aspirations Award Ceremony Spring 2017

The “NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing” acknowledges the computing achievements and aspirations of young women at the high school level and generates visibility for women’s participation in computing-related pursuits.
The Northern Illinois Affiliate for the NCWIT Aspirations Award will recognize 53 young women from Chicago area high schools and honor them at our event on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Lewis University in Romeoville, IL.

We need individual and/or corporate sponsors to provide an additional level of encouragement for each girl.

All sponsors are invited to our professional networking segment event to be held immediately following the award ceremony in the prestigious Science Building atrium. It will be a unique networking opportunity for organizations to showcase the work they do, the various roles they have, the types of skill sets they hire, etc. Format will be similar to any professional . Just as importantly this opportunity to advertise, recruit and educate this diverse audience of students, parents, teachers, volunteers & other sponsors is very inspiring to the awardees themselves.  We encourage and appreciate your involvement both for in person networking and to share collateral, company promotional items, and experiences with these attendees!
