Topplers was very excited to present our first Domino Award at University of California Irvine this past May. With the help of André van der Hoek, the Chair of the Department of Informatics, the Domino Award was offered to students in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences.
We had lots of great submission and the winning essay on Grace Hopper’s impact on computer science was submitted by Nithin Jilla. Nithin just graduated this spring and already has an impressive resume of accomplishments.
Nithin received a $500 scholarship and will join winners Alex Tsankov from University of Colorado and Brittany Arthur from University of California Santa Cruz on an all-expenses paid trip to experience innovations in technology first-hand.
Topplers would like to thank our sponsors for generously supporting the Domino Award: Adeptive Software, Applied Trust, ClickBank, Gold Systems, and the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences. Our sponsors have been vital in expanding the Domino Award this year and we are grateful for their continued support.
