TradingScreen Inc., The MIT Club of New York, and The MIT Enterprise Forum of NYC, are proud to announce the launch of “Dream it. Code it. Win it.,” a competition for student programmers. Dream It. Code It Win It. will award more than $50,000 in committed scholarships and other prizes to students 18 years or older, and enrolled at accredited institutions.
“When we designed Dream It. Code It. Win It., the idea was to move beyond the traditional hack-a-thon format, giving contestants greater flexibility in the types of problems that they would solve using their own programming skills,” said Cristina Dolan, a board member of the MIT Enterprise Forum and an officer of the MIT Club of New York.
“The orientation of this contest is towards greater creativity and diversity, making it more of a create-a-thon. This orientation is critical, to integrate new people, perspectives and skill sets that seem underrepresented in programming at the moment,” added Dolan.
