Madison County Schools selected as first recipient of Computer Science Education Incentive Award

RICHMOND, Ky. – AdvanceKentucky and Time Warner Cable are proud to announce Madison County Schools as the first recipient of the Computer Science Education Incentive Award.  These awards are offered to school districts that promote growth and awareness of computer science education throughout Kentucky.  For their efforts, each middle school in Madison County will receive $1000 to further their computer science education.  In total, the district will receive $5000. 

Madison County Schools was initially selected by being one of the first school districts in Kentucky to offer the new AP Computer Science Principles course, a high school course designed to expose students to global issues surrounding coding, computational thinking, and coding across multiple platforms. To be eligible for this award, Madison County Schools held a district-wide Hour of Code event across all five middle schools.  On December 7th, 2,638 middle school students earned their Hour of Code certificate by completing one of many coding tutorials found on http://www.hourofcode.com.
