Do you believe that technology can make a positive difference in the world?
So do we. That’s why we created the Topplers Domino Award, which encourages students to “think big” by seeing first-hand how computer scientists have significantly impacted modern society, and inspires the next generation of innovators to think about how their own work can make a positive impact on the world.
Sponsoring the Domino Award is a unique opportunity for your company to be part of inspiring these talented students, while showing your support of STEM education, and a commitment to cultivating innovative thinkers.
Reaching 43,000 undergraduate computer science students at 300+ universities across America, the 2014/2015 Domino Award competition will award up to 10 winners a trip to the South-by-Southwest Interactive Festival in the spring of 2015*. As we grow the reach of the Domino Award, sponsors will be recognized in print and online as companies who are committed to furthering computer science education.
Inspired by Domino Theory, where one small action can set off a chain of events that leads to a much bigger impact, Topplers is building one of the top awards for young computer scientists. With the growing importance of technology in all sectors of the economy, computer science is one of the fastest growing majors in the United States.
This essay contest moves students beyond the bits and bytes to help them see the application of innovation out in the world and to think about the impact their work can have on society. Award winners are taken on a trip to see the latest in technology and innovation first-hand. This amazing opportunity to meet their tech heroes and ask them questions, see how the latest innovations are being applied to solve problems, and to network with fellow students and technologists, expands students’ horizons, introducing new possibilities for meaningful work and can change the trajectory of their lives.
