Coosa Middle School (CMS) has been awarded the Code.org CS Leaders Prize of $10,000 to help expand computer science education for their students! CMS is one of only 102 CS Leader Prize winners in the U.S. and one of two in Georgia.
According to their official press release, Code.org wanted to recognize the schools who are working hard to recover from the challenges that the education system has gone through over the past two years and support their goals to establish or expand access to computer science not only for students in their own classrooms, but also in their districts. This will impact more than 55,000 students, many in underserved areas. The winning schools will also work within their districts to impact many more students in other schools in the coming years.
