Grant Recipient: BDPA Chicago ($2,250)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) approved a partial grant payment of $2,250 to the BDPA Chicago chapter. The chapter originally requested $5,000 to support its programs ... however, BETF was only in position to provide a partial grant.

BDPA Chicago chapter president Reggie Rush wrote, "The training program for our annual High School Computer Competition (HSCC) program has been ongoing and challenging. The students in our program are committed and should be allowed to demonstrate what they have learned in the National HSCC championship. The majority of our students are new to BDPA and those that are not eligible to compete would benefit from attending the Youth Technology Camp as an incentive to work harder to make the team next year. We have doubled our fundraising efforts but due to the reduction in financial support, we are requesting additional support from BETF."
BETF is committed to work with BDPA Chicago in the coming weeks and months to get an early start of its fundraising for the 2016 cycle. We ask that the readers of this blog take a moment to make a secure online donation in support of BDPA Chicago!
