    One of our students asked me to post this. The other events are getting a good response, but we'd really like to get some more teams for the Java programming competition.

    The Information Technology Competition is an event where students from many different schools gather to demonstrate their expertise in the Information Technology field. Teams of students will receive a case-study (a real-life business project created by a company in the industry) to work on two weeks before the event. They present their work at the competition and it is then analyzed, judged and critiqued by the industry professionals who select the winners.
