We will once again offer a prize for each building.  The elementary students will have the chance to win a sphero mini.  The jr. high and high school students will have the chance to win a mini drone.  There will be a district grand prize winner who will be awarded a Chromebook.  

Here are some statistics.  Did you know that 90% of parents want their child to study computer science, but only 40% of schools teach computer programming.  Computing jobs are the #1 source of new wages in the United States!!   Help us get our students excited about computer science.


These are links to the prizes that will be given out.
