We are proud to announce that GirlsCodingWithGirls will be honored by Code.org and CSTA in Seattle on December 3rd with a Champions of CS award as part of the CS Ed Week Celebration. Melinda Gates will be helping to present the awards. Here is an article about GCWG in NJ.com. Adesola Sanusi, who founded GCWG her senior year in high school and now works at Google, will be accepting the award on behalf of GCWG.
GCWG is a group at Warren Hills Regional HS in which high school girls teach 4th-8th grade girls to code, but more importantly, it is about the older girls mentoring and inspiring. They have hosted 10 six week sessions over the last 5 years with 260 younger girls and 39 high school mentors. All 22 mentors who graduated are studying Engineering or Computer Science in college.
