BDPA Dallas High School Computer Competition Team (2013)

BDPA Dallas chapter is doing some great things this year! These great things include the chapter's continued commitment to the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program. The chapter has been very innovative in their STEM-based training for high school students. The training program uses both an online courses and face-to-face hands-on sessions to teach students how to design and build dynamic websites. The training takes place at South Oak Cliff High School. Up to five of the students in the SITES program may be invited to represent the city and chapter in the National BDPA High School Computer Competition championship taking place next month in Washington DC.

L-R: Emilio Ramos, Xavier Grandberry, Veronica Scott, Jaqueria Lacy and Quintin Neal.

Funding to support the SITES program in Dallas currently comes from BlueCross BlueShield of IL, NM, OK and TX, JPMorgan Chase, membership dues and generous supporters like you!
