The ProjectCSGIRLS Competition for Middle School Girls challenges participants in 6th-8th grade to build something using computer science and technology that can help solve an imminent social problem under one of three themes – global health, a safer world, and intelligent technology. Judges will select semifinalists, finalists, and national winners. All finalists will receive a fully paid trip to DC for our national gala, the ultimate celebration of girls in computing, in June of 2017 during which they will participate in workshops, listen to guest speakers, tour tech companies, participate in a formal awards ceremony, and showcase their projects to the public. Registration for the 2017 ProjectCSGIRLS competition closes February 15th, 2017. The deadline to submit projects is April 15th, 2017. Mentors will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis so if students would like to request a mentor, they should register early!
The competition is completely free and students can register here: http://www.projectcsgirls.com/register.html
