In conjunction with the 36th annual National Black Data Processing Associates (BDPA) Technology Conference, top Indianapolis students will be recognized at the National BDPA Information Technology (IT) Showcase August 6-8, 2014, at the JW Marriott, 10 S. West Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204. The showcase allows students from Indianapolis and United States educational institutions to present and demonstrate their research in Emerging Technology, Wireless, Biometrics, Digital Imaging, Video Production, and Security Professional Development. The presentations represent advanced computing and technical topics presented by college and high school students to an audience of corporate representatives and IT professionals.
More than 100 students will converge in Indianapolis to participate in internships, IT careers, Youth Entrepreneurship, Networking Computers, Software Development, and Building Computers. Training in Academic Enhancement, College Selection and Scholarships, SAT/ACT Preparation, Lifelong Learning Skills, and Personal Development will also be offered. The student presentations and research projects are judged by a panel of three judges in college and high school categories. Awards are made in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place categories and all participants will receive a Certificate of Appreciation award.

Moore, Jr., for their continuous commitment to preparing our students for our IT Showcase and competitions,” said Terry Morris, Indianapolis Chapter President. “There is no doubt that we would not be successful without them,” he added.
