CSTA offers a number of awards including national and international awards to students, teachers, and administrators.  We believe that honoring the hard work of educators and students interested in furthering computer science studies and advancing technology provides motivation and recognition that benefits us all.

"CSTA's 23,000+ members are engaged in a wide range of innovative and impactful activities. While their efforts are helping to prepare students for a technology-rich future and raise awareness for the importance of computer science, individual innovators rarely receive the personal recognition that they richly deserve.
Through its awards programs, CSTA is able to recognize the efforts of outstanding educators and their students, as well as shine a spotlight on their accomplishments."
