HYPE Night 2021 Recap!

HYPE Night 2021 was an amazing evening with a huge amount of support; best of all, our scholars truly felt seen, loved, supported, inspired, and encouraged ... this is truly the best part of my job!

Huge thanks to our HYPE Professional Contestants: Dr. Maxine CainSandy D. Welfare, M.B.A., and ★LeAndra Jordan who apparently did not come to play games! They took home the 2021 win, but HYPE scholars will be ready for a rematch next year! Be on the lookout for tickets 😉

Another huge thank you to our official HYPE Night sponsors who allowed us to put on an amazing production and event:
MicrosoftMohawk IndustriesVerizon Policy, Georgia Power CompanyThe Coca-Cola Company Women in STEM, State Farm ®LexisNexis Risk Solutions, and Alston & Bird

Because of your support, we accomplished:

  • Awarding $10,000 in scholarships to 4 HYPE Future of Tech scholarship recipients (sponsored by Microsoft)
  • Gave away 10 raffle prizes donated by sponsors and small-business owners
  • Raised over $30,000 to continue driving our mission of empowering 2500 girls in tech by 2023
  • Sponsored 5 future HYPE scholars via the newly launched "Sponsor-A-Student" Initiative

We still have opportunities through this monthly giving initiative to sponsor a HYPE scholar for as little as $38/month. To learn more, visit: www.gethype.org/sponsorhype
