Message from Richmond Chapter HSCC Coordinator

Candace Johnson-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 youth interest in Information Technology. The chapter is now recruiting rising 9th to 12th grade students to enroll in its Youth Technology 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. 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 High School Computer Competition, which will be held at the National BDPA Conference on August 1-4, 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland. 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 forward this information on to all of your technology teachers so that they can direct students to our program. If you have any questions or need additional information, email me or give me a call at (804) 432-3465. Also, feel free to attend our kickoff program on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at ECPI College of Technology located at 4305 Cox Road, Glen Allen, VA, at 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
