US High School Students: Apply for New ACM/CSTA Computing Prize

Applications Due January 1, 2016

ACM and CSTA, the Computer Science Teachers Association, have announced a new award, the ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing, to recognize talented high school students in computer science. The program seeks to promote and encourage the field of computer science, as well as to empower young and aspiring learners to pursue computing challenges outside of the traditional classroom environment.

Four winners will be selected annually and each will be awarded a $10,000 prize and cost of travel to the annual ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing Reception where students will demonstrate their programs and discuss their work. The prizes are funded by a $1 million endowment established by David Cutler and Gordon Bell.

The application period for the inaugural award is now open; deadline is January 1, 2016. The inaugural awards will be announced in February.
