The #MNGirlsDisruptTECH campaign was developed to challenge young women in grades 9 to 12 across the state to embrace their interests and aspirations in computing, step out into the limelight and join the movement to disrupt gender equity in Tech by applying for the Aspirations in Computing (AiC) Award — winners from the state and national level are awarded life changing opportunities that include scholarships, internships, job shadow experiences, mentor relationship, resources and much more.
