Students are selected for the award for their "outstanding aptitude and interest in information technology," along with their leadership skills, academic strength and plans for college or career. Both students attend the Center for Advanced Technologies at Lakewood.

The awards, which will be given at a ceremony in April, are intended to encourage young women to choose technology careers.

He called it a "wonderful accomplishment."
