WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Sophomore Kristen Kjetsaa, of Washington Township's Immaculate Heart Academy, was runner-up in the National Center for Women & Information Technology New Jersey Affiliate Selection Committee Award for Aspirations in Computing.

Kristen was recognized for her computing-related aspirations and her demonstrated aptitude and interest in information technology and computing, solid leadership ability, good academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. She was one of almost 2,100 young women who were Affiliate Award recipients this season.

Kristen has shown outstanding skills in her computer programming, computer applications and Java programming classes at IHA. She is also the project lead in the Robotics and Applied Engineering clubs.

"IHA's STEM program has given me so many opportunities to expand my knowledge of computer science," Kristen said. "Ever since arriving at IHA, I have been able to take technology classes that allow me to explore my interests. STEM at IHA offers all of these amazing programs and it is truly an outstanding cohort to be a part of."
