SMECO Sponsors 30th Southern Maryland Computer Bowl

SMECO marked 30 years of sponsoring its annual Southern Maryland High School Computer Bowl on March 2.

The competition underscores the importance of computer skills for students who plan to become proficient in technical and industrial fields. With information technology firmly embedded in daily life, electric utilities like SMECO depend heavily on computerization to help keep the lights on for their customers. The experience of competing in the Computer Bowl can help prepare students for careers such as software development and cybersecurity.
