Two 8th girls selected for UNO CodeCrush
Posted November 6, 2018
Rose Padios and Majesty Marti-Lester, both 8th graders at Westside Middle School, have been selected for the elite CodeCrush program at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
These two girls are only 32 chosen for the program out of more than 70 applicants from Nebraska, South Dakota and Iowa. From November 28-30, the students will attend CodeCrush at UNO, where they will be immersed in a world of IT including special speakers, tours and seminars. CodeCrush was created to spark a larger movement across the Midwest for more young girls to pursue internet technology as their careers of choice.
