Minnesota Aspirations in Computing is Proud of its 10-Year Impact and This Year’s Class of 110 Honorees
2022 marks the 10th year of the Minnesota Aspirations in Computing Program (MNAiC) which offers year-round events and activities to inspire and empower students in high school to become our next, best Minnesota-grown technology talent. MNAiC partners with the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) and a remarkable array of Minnesota companies and organizations to support high school students who identify as women, genderqueer, or non-binary to realize their computing-related education and career aspirations.
Since 2012 the program has impacted thousands of statewide students with 726 being selected as award honorees. This year 110 honorees ranging from Rising Star to Top-Tier State Honorees to National level award recipients have been selected by national and state review teams for their technology passion, interests, and achievements.
Beyond prizes and local and statewide media attention, award honorees at the various levels are provided access to mentoring, job shadow, internship, and college scholarship opportunities. Three distinct ceremonies will occur on April 13 – Top-Tier, April 30 – Rising Star – freshman/sophomore honorees hosted by the Minnesota Twins at Target Field, and May 7 – Rising Star – junior/senior honorees hosted by General Mills. Family, friends, educators, business partners and sponsors will gather to support and celebrate the award recipients remarkable I.T. achievements.
