L-R: Mimes, Dawson, Pulliam and Sylvester.
BDPA Cincinnati proudly announced the finalists for its team that will be representing the chapter and the city in the 2012 National BDPA High School Computer Competition (HSCC) championship to be held in Baltimore later this year. The 2012 national HSCC finalists are:
  1. Micaiah Dawson, 10th grade, Winton Woods High School
  2. Hadiya Harrigan, 11th grade, Seven Hill High School
  3. Hasani Harrigan, 9th grade, Seven Hill High School
  4. Curtis Mimes, 12th grade, William Taft High School
  5. Brian Pulliam, 11th grade, Fairfield High School
  6. Malik Sylvester, 11th grade, Mason High School
BDPA Cincinnati chapter recently completed a remarkable Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program that included a computer camp with 14 students from 7th grade to 12th grade. The students learned HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, and MySQL.

The class was taught by a number of volunteers including Richard Afunah, Frank Hill and Deborah Prince in a computer lab provided by Cincinnati State Technical College.  The chapter is also pleased to recognize the financial support provided by Christ Church Cathedral, Cincinnati Bell and others ... financial support necessary to share these meaningful STEM-based experiences provided with these young people.

BDPA Cincinnati chapter has high expectations for this year's team and looks forward to them bringing home the gold medal from the national championship! The actual team should be named before the end of the month.
