Message from Richmond Chapter HSCC Coordinator

Candace Hamlin
BDPA Richmond chapter is pleased to announce the start of its Annual High School Computer Competition (HSCC) Program! The goal of this exciting training and competition is to increase our youth's interest in information technology.

BDPA Richmond is now recruiting rising 9th to 12th grade students to enroll in the HSCC Program. The program provides an environment where high school students have an opportunity to compete on an academic level and showcase their technical skills and creativity. Selected students receive several weeks of introductory and advanced training in computer technologies such as HTML, ASP.NET, and relational databases. Participating students also gain essential skills such as presentation delivery and teamwork.

At the conclusion of the program, selected students will represent BDPA Richmond in the National BDPA HSCC Championships, which will be held at the National BDPA Technology Conference from August 3-6, 2011 in Chicago, IL. The competition team will enjoy an all-expense paid trip to the conference with an opportunity to win college scholarships.

If you are interested in having your students participate in our program please contact us at or call us on (804) 751-5171. Also, please plan to attend our Youth education kick off-program on Saturday, February 26th at ECPI (Innsbrook) 4305 Cox Road Richmond, VA 23060 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Kind Regards,
Candace J. Hamlin, HSCC Coordinator
BDPA Richmond Chapter
