What we're all about

The BDPA National High School Computer Competition, (HSCC), was founded in 1986
by Dr. Jesse Bemley, of Washington, D.C. What started as a two-team event
between Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, Ga. has grown to over 20 teams of high
school students from chapters throughout the nation. It's all designed to
introduce youth to the field of Information Technology, encourage them to seek
higher levels of education, and groom many of them to become our next generation
of IT professionals.

The team of 5 deserving and dedicated students from schools across New York City
has been training since January.  Unfortunately, we don't have the funds to take
them to the competition in Washington D.C. August 18-22. The competition is such a valuable experience allows students to not only develop technology, but get involved in STEM initiatives which we hope they will continue through college. This competition teaches them valuable life skills and gives them the experience to show their leadership. 

Unfortunately BDPA has lost their Corporate Sponsor so we fundraising for the Conference cost, transportation and lodging.
