Stephenville, Texas was the place to be Friday and Saturday, February 28-28, 2004 for the Tarleton State University AITP 18th Annual Glenda Anderson Programming Contest and Symposium. Area AITP student chapters traveled to the North Texas town just south of Ft. Worth for contest events and speakers. This contest serves as an annual fundraiser for the Tarleton State University AITP student chapter to generate additional funds in order to attend the AITP National Collegiate Conference, but also provides a warm-up opportunity for attendees to prepare for the upcoming national contest events. Additionally, the conference is run by the AITP student chapter, including all the contest events as well!

Schools represented included:

  • Texas State University - San Marcos
  • Hardin-Simmons University
  • McMurray University
  • Northwestern State University
  • Central Texas College
  • University of Texas at Dallas
  • Texas State Technical College - Waco
  • University of Texas at Arlington

In addition to the AITP student members in attendance, the AITP Region 3 officers held a spring meeting and conducted a leadership workshop as well. In fact, Region 3 President Teresa Hickerson was the Saturday luncheon speaker and helped recognize all the winners while encouraging everyone to apply for the RHT/AITP scholarship let alone attending the upcoming AITP National Collegiate Conference April 1-3, 2004 in Omaha, Nebraska. It was also announced that the Tarleton State University AITP student chapter will host the AITP Region 3 student conference October 7-9, 2004, where approximately 300 IT students and faculty will be in attendance.
