Route 66: The Road to the 2006 National BDPA HSCC Championship

Gibran McDuffie is the coordinator of the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program conducted each year by BDPA Chicago chapter. One of the components of the SITES program is the annual High School Computer Competition (HSCC).

There have been 26 HSCC championships held in the United States since the first one took place back in 1986. In recent years the HSCC championships have been dominated by the BDPA chapter in Rochester, MN.

However, there is one team that has beaten BDPA Southern Minnesota over the past seven years. BDPA Chicago's HSCC team won the national championship in 2006.

Gibran takes the time to share the story of that 2006 National BDPA HSCC Championship team. The story is compelling ... and it offers some outstanding 'lessons learned' for the other 45 BDPA chapters to consider as they begin planning for the 2012 HSCC championships.
