Students from West Hartford’s Conard and Hall high schools have been recognized by the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT).

In 1987, March was declared Women’s History Month. It is fitting that we celebrate our female students who made history by winning this year’s NCWIT Aspirations Awards.
The National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) created the Aspirations in Computing Award. Each year, U.S. high school students in grades 9 through 12 who are women, genderqueer, or non-binary are eligible to receive recognition for their aptitude and aspirations in technology and computing, as demonstrated by their computing experience, computing-related activities, leadership experience, tenacity in the face of barriers to access, and plans for post-secondary education.
West Hartford is proud to announce that we have two National Awardees and 11 State Awardees. Congratulations to all students shown above!
