We are delighted to welcome the following new Student Chapters to ACM-W:
- University of Hawaii at Manoa
- University of Washington Bothell
- University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
- Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering Boston University
The Facebook contests are so much fun! We love to see what the chapters have accomplished. To encourage more FB posts, we are announcing a monthly contest. Each month we’ll choose the best post and award a $50 prize. The only rule is that the post must be made within 30 days of the actual event. So, when you have an event, post it! (And if there are too many great posts in any month, we might give multiple awards!) At the end of 2019, we will give an additional award to the chapter who was the best FB poster across the year. Visit our home on Facebook here!
We are delighted to announce the Vanderbilt Women in Computing chapter has won our best FB post contest. They sponsored the Emerge conference, which focuses on emerging technologies with Artificial Intelligence being the topic this year. Over 300 students, faculty, entrepreneurs, and community members participated in the event, which included keynote talks as well as breakout and networking sessions. Vanderbilt will receive a $250 prize to celebrate!(more…)
We are happy to announce the winner of our best Facebook post contest is the ACM-W Chapter at the University of Central Florida. This chapter designed a team-building exercise that sounds like loads of fun: a CS-themed escape room! Watch our web page for more details on how you can develop an escape room for your chapter. The UCF chapter wins $250 to celebrate their achievement.
We want to offer a huge congratulation to two ACM-W chapters that were winners of the 2017-2018 ACM Student Chapter Excellence Awards. The Community Service Award was given to the College of William & Mary ACM-W chapter and the Website award was given to the University of Wisconsin chapter.
