SAVE THE DATE: APRIL 18, 2019

NCWIT-KY and KGSC will be honoring the achievements and aspirations of twenty-nine young women from across Kentucky with an awards ceremony and trophy presentation honoring Kentucky State winners. The ceremony will take place in conjunction with the April 18th STLP State Championships at the Lexington Convention Center.

National Honorable Mentions Mina, Lottie, Jada and Sarah will also be recognized during the ceremony by NCWIT representative Eva Bradshaw.

50% OF KENTUCKY’S AIC WINNERS COME FROM RURAL COUNTIES, AND EVENTS LIKE STLP STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE A RARE CHANCE FOR THESE HIGH ACHIEVING STUDENTS TO MEET LOCAL WOMEN WHO WORK IN THE TECHNOLOGY SECTOR.

To help facilitate these connections MWM-KY will be hosting a speed mentoring event and dinner at the April 18th awards ceremony in Lexington.

If technology is key to your work,
we need you!
