Last November, Meghan Taylor and Sierra Davis applied for the 2012 Utah National Center for Women’s Information and Technology (NCWIT) Award. Recently, Meghan and Sierra received the word that they had been selected as state winners. There were many applicants state-wide, and only 10 applicants were awarded.
The NCWIT is an organization that works towards strengthening and enriching young women’s involvement in computing and technology. The award is intended to recognize young women who show extraordinary skills and potential in the field.
Sierra is only a junior at Salem Hills. She was selected because of her work with digital photography. After graduation, Sierra plans on attending BYU to continue to develop her skills in the technological field.
Meghan is a senior, and the school’s Sterling Scholar in Business and Marketing. Meghan plans on attending Weber State, and hopes to eventually open her own veterinary practice.
Sierra and Meghan will be honored at a ceremony on March 23rd, atthe University of Utah.
