Lisa Posey, a teacher at Genoa Central High School, has been selected to receive a $1,000 sponsorship to attend the Computer Science Teachers Association Annual Conference this summer.
She is one of 18 in the state selected to attend.
The sponsorships were open to Arkansas K-12 public school teachers, librarians, curriculum coordinators, counselors and other educators who have demonstrated their commitment to technology integration and computer science education at their school or district. Educators were selected by an impartial committee of ADE employees and statewide computer science specialists who reviewed all applicants and scored them using a rubric.
To receive the sponsorship, selected educators will be required to attend the conference and participate in various conference and state delegation activities. Recipients will receive the sponsorships after the conference to offset conference expenses.
