ProjectCSGirls (yes, girls only)
Contest dates are based on last year’s timeline. I will update times/dates as soon as possible, but if you are interested, keep an eye on our website and the ProjectCSGirls website as well!
Founded during the summer of 2013, ProjectCSGIRLS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in computing and technology. Our unique idea of a technology and computer science competition for middle school girls stemmed from the fact that a large chunk of learning and development occurs during the critical middle school period. In today’s world where technology is becoming increasingly prominent and essential to nearly every field of study, we aim to instill a love for computing and technology in middle school girls. We hope to show them how innovative and creative they can be and encourage them to develop ideas that are powerful, disruptive, and cutting-edge.
We have reached over 2,500 middle school girls nationally in over 35 states to date and have brought together students, technical professionals, and organizations to work towards a common goal of inspiring girls across the country to pursue computer science and technology.
