The focus was to introduce the AITES project, increase parents’ awareness of the IT job crisis, barriers facing girls seeking IT careers and IT opportunities. Participants visited an AITES exhibit and received ATIES information products. CCTs utilized the “Power of Partners” and “You Can Be Anything” videos to convey the AITES message to an audience of over 200 parents, teachers, 4-H volunteers and students.
Contestants of the 4-H Clover Bowl received ATIES pencils and bookmarks with their awards.
