The "A Star" Awards

* The "A Star" Awards, which hope to tackle the gender imbalance and skills shortage in computing, have been backed by the Equal Opportunities Commission. It will be Britain's first competition for top female computing students and the 12 girls scoring the highest marks in this year's A Level or Scottish Advanced Higher computing examinations will qualify for the final. Prizes will be presented in November at the SkillCity 2002 event in Manchester. The awards are backed by the six main exam bodies and are organised by Axios Systems.
