US High School Students Encouraged to Apply for the 2023 - 2024 ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize

December 12, 2023

Every year, the ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing recognizes talented computer science students in the United States. 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 requires the student to submit an artifact comprising of a video, written essay responses, and source code that demonstrates modern computing technology and computer science. Judges will be looking for submissions that are creative, advanced, relevant, unique, and show a passion for advancing computer science. Applications are open through January 19, 2024.

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. Each will also receive an invitation to attend and present at the CSTA 2024 Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The prizes are funded by a $1 million endowment established by David Cutler and Gordon Bell.

Detailed information, including a link to the online application, is available on the ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing website.
