BDPA Atlanta High School Computer Competition Team (2013)

BDPA Atlanta chapter won the 2012 National BDPA High School Computer Competition (HSCC) championship. The success of the program attracted fourteen (14) students to try out for the 2013 HSCC team representing the chapter and city at this year's national HSCC championship being held in Washington DC.

The final five students to make the national HSCC team from Atlanta will be announced later this month. Here are the high school hopefuls:

The HSCC program in Atlanta is designed to teach High School students how to create web applications using coding languages; HTML, CSS, SQL, MySQL, and PHP. In addition to learning how to code, students receive coaching regarding their personal and professional development. BDPA Atlanta volunteers work with students on team building, public speaking, time management, presentation skills as well as goal setting.

The chapter would like to win the national HSCC championship again ... however, its objective is to equip, encourage and enlighten all of the students in their journey to become successful IT professionals. You can help BDPA Atlanta chapter by supporting its HSCC Scholarship fundraising initiative.
