Why does the world need another coding competition?
“Dream it. Code it. Win it.” has been launched to celebrate creativity, literacy, and diversity in Computer Science. Those missing elements are important, because they are required to address a growing gap in the number, and the quality of graduates required to fill the next generation of STEM jobs.

“Dream it. Code it. Win it.,” has been launched with more than $50,000… prizes, (which) will be awarded to students 18 years or older, and enrolled at accredited institutions.
(T)his competition was launched to celebrate and reward computer science as a creative tool, and not just as a coding exercise. This approach is meant to help encourage people of all backgrounds and genders to participate, particularly women, who make up just 23 percent of STEM workers, versus 48 percent of the total workforce, according to the National Math and Science Initiative.
