Three Breck students were among 44 young women to be recognized by the Minnesota Aspirations in Computing Awards Committee earlier this week. 

Elizabeth Berman '20 and Samantha Detor '20 were both awarded Certificates of Distinction. Caroline Pirtle '22 received the Rising Star award.

According to their website, the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) selected 24 Certificate of Distinction Honorees whose scores were relatively strong, as evidenced by their engagement in a variety of technology and leadership experiences offered in their high school and community.

The Minnesota Aspirations committee also selected 20 Rising Star Honorees who demonstrated engagement in a mixture of technology education and leadership experiences, showing strong promise to be successful pursuing a technology education and career path.
