High School Computer Competition (Chicago)

BDPA Education & Technology Foundation (BETF) is proud to know that Bemley Scholarships, BDPA Scholarships sponsored by Bank of America and Eli Lilly Scholarships for BDPA Students have supported the educational goals of many BDPA Chicago high school students over the past few years.

In fact, Lee Reed,one of the top BETF scholars in our history, won all three of these scholarships. Lee is shown in the photo with other members of the bronze-medal winning team from Chicago at the 2008 national competition. Lee is now a freshman at the University of Michigan.

Anyhow, it should be noted that BDPA Chicago is already recruiting for its 2009 High School Computer Competition (HSCC) team web site. They have created a website,, to help you find information about their program, resources they use, and links to key web sites.

The HSCC program in Chicago and elsewhere prepares students to participate in computer programming competitions utilizing the Java programming language. Students learn to build web based, database driven, software applications. The principle goal of HSCC to teach students to use technology to solve business problems.

Are students being recruited in other chapters around the country?
