The Inclusion, Diversity & Equity in Action (IDEA) Awards is a student-driven celebration of the professionals and companies in the Austin Tech ecosystem who have made a tremendous investment of time, talent and treasure in the hundreds of students served by the Code2College program.
Five of the seven award categories are based entirely on student nominations that are submitted as short essays in recognition of the impact that the mentorship, guidance and training has made on their lives, as well as their academic and professional trajectories.
Thanks to the work and volunteerism of these tremendous individuals and organizations, students have made marked improvements in their academic performances, developed critical professional and technical skills, generated significant summer earnings and secured admissions at competitive undergraduate programs across the country.
Together We're Making An Impact
All proceeds generated from the IDEA Awards event directly fund school-year programming for our student participants.
