Two Breck students among MN Aspirations in Computing Honorees
The Minnesota Aspirations in Computing Awards (MNAiC) program announced the 2020 Class of Honorees on May 1, which included recognition of two Breck students.
Sahana Mangipudi '21 was awarded the State Honorable Mention and Caroline Pirtle '22 received a Rising Star award. There were 133 awardees from high schools through Minnesota selected by national and state review teams; 37 students were selected as Rising Star honorees, 53 as Certificate of Distinction honorees, and 43 as top-level state and/or national honorees.
The purpose of these awards is to recognize and promote STEM education in our communities with a specific focus on women's participation in computing and information technology. The MNAiC's parent organization is the National Center for Women & Information Technology. Over the past 8 years, the organizations have recognized nearly 500 young women from schools across the state. Their goal is to help organizations recruit, retain, and advance women from K-12 and high education through industry and entrepreneurial careers.
Award winners, depending on their level, are eligible to continue their STEM-related studies through job shadow experiences, paid summer internship opportunities, access to exclusive resources from the National Center of Women and Information Technology (NCWIT).
