Two Houghton High School students are being recognized for their computing-related achievements and interests.

Tech Today reports that Caitlyn McKenzie has been named winner of a Michigan regional award in the National Center for Women and Information Technology—Aspirations in Computing competition.

Miriam Eikenberry-Ureel was a runner-up.

They were honored at an awards ceremony last weekend at the Michigan Celebration of Women in Computing conference at the University of Michigan- Dearborn.

Both girls have been involved for several years in Michigan Tech’s Copper Country Programmers, a computer club for local teens.

They also work to help others in the community learn more about computers and coding.
