The Award:
The ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing is a prize designed to recognize talented high school students intending to continue their higher education in the areas of computer science or technology. The program seeks to promote and encourage the field of computer science and empower young and aspiring learners to pursue computing challenges outside of the traditional classroom environment.
The prize is made available through a $1 million endowment established by David Cutler and Gordon Bell. Dr. Cutler is a software engineer, designer, and developer of several operating systems, including Windows NT at Microsoft and RSX-11M, VMS and VAXELN at Digital Equipment Corporation. He is a Senior Technical Fellow at Microsoft. Dr. Bell is an electrical engineer and an early employee of Digital Equipment Corporation, where he led VAX development. He is now a researcher emeritus at Microsoft Research.
Up to four winners will be selected annually. Each will be awarded a $10,000 prize that will be administered through the financial aid department at the university the student will attend.
To apply for the Cutler-Bell Prize, you must be a graduating high school senior residing and attending school in the U.S. Applicants are asked to submit an artifact that engages modern computing technology and computer science. Judges will look for submissions that demonstrate ingenuity, complexity, relevancy, originality, and a desire to further computer science as a discipline.
