Dream it. Code it. Win it.

With our recent efforts to promote career opportunities in mold manufacturing with our MoldMaking Matters: Your Career Can Make a Difference video, I thought I'd share this post about the second annual award-winning "Dream it. Code it. Win it." contest, which is a student coding competition that rewards and promotes creativity, diversity and literacy in the field of computer science.

With our recent efforts to promote career opportunities in mold manufacturing with our MoldMaking Matters: Your Career Can Make a Difference video, I thought I'd share this post about the second annual award-winning "Dream it. Code it. Win it." contest, which is a student coding competition that rewards and promotes creativity, diversity and literacy in the field of computer science.

According to CEO Philippe Buhannic of TradingScreen, which is sponsoring the Technology Entrepreneurship Award, ‘Dream it. Code it. Win it.’ "alters the prism through which computer science is viewed by illuminating what the study can offer and the limitless potential it possesses, and will encourage more students to enter the field.”

"Dream it. Code it. Win it." is different from traditional competitions or hackathons, which focus on coding. The contest is judged on the quality of the problem being tackled as well as the solution. The first Dream it. Code it. Win it. competition in 2014 achieved a 50% female participation rate and enabled four teams to launch their own companies.

Students attending accredited high schools and colleges will be able to compete for cash and prizes through an online submission until midnight on March 29, 2015. The final awards ceremony will be hosted by The Cooper Union at the historic Great Hall in New York on the evening of April 30th.
