US High School Students Encouraged to Apply for the 2022 - 2023 ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize
December 8, 2022
Every year, the ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing recognizes talented high school students in computer science. The intent of the program is 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.
The application process involves a challenge that focuses on having the student develop an original computational artifact that engages modern computing technology and computer science. Judges will look for submissions that demonstrate ingenuity, complexity, relevancy, originality, impact, and a desire to further computer science as a discipline. Applications are open through January 27, 2023.
Up to four winners will be selected and each will be awarded a $10,000 prize, which will be administered through the financial aid department at the university the student will attend. The prizes are funded by a $1 million endowment established by David Cutler and Gordon Bell.
Detailed information, including the link to the online application, is available on the ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing website.
