2005 National BDPA High School Computer Competition (HSCC) Rankings

I have been to many BDPA Technology Conferences in my life. My favorite annual conference was the one held August 2005 in Detroit. It was my last conference as national president. My mom and eldest daughter were in attendance (see photo!). One of my favorite people ... Bob Blackwell ... was the keynote speaker.

Also, the annual HSCC championships were wide-open as 4-time defending champion HSCC team trained by BDPA Memphis chapter did not show up in 2005. All of the teams knew it was a wide-open event. BDPA Southern Minnesota took advantage of the opportunity by taking the gold medal!

The BDPA Foundation wants to provide 2-year scholarship funding to the top five teams this year. However, we need to increase our funding of the Bemley Scholarship Fund in order to do so. Would you care to help us make it so? Use the COMMENTS link below to make a pledge ... or go online to do so.

Did you attend the 2005 BDPA Technology Conference in Detroit? If so, what do you remember about it?
