Charleston Mobile Application Development Competition

On behalf of the Charleston Defense Contractors Association' (CDCA) Board of Directors, I am pleased to invite your school to participate in the Inaugural Mobile Application Development Competition that runs from now until Nov. 4th. The competition is an extension of our association's educational mission and will run in conjunction with our Fifth Annual Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Combat Systems, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Government and Industry Conference, 14-17 November 2011 in Charleston, SC.

One of the goals of the CDCA is to assist in fostering the next generation of employees in the defense industry - both government and private sector companies. In an effort to promote such continuum, we are offering an opportunity for your school and its students to receive up to $6000 in Scholarships and Awards. This hands-on experience introduces students to the industry and future employment opportunities, promotes teamwork, and encourages technical and creative innovation. We encourage you to inform your students of this excellent opportunity to showcase their skills and creativity before hundreds of potential employers.

To take advantage of this opportunity, please print and post the attached flyer. Further information about our organization and the competition can be found at We look forward to receiving entries from your students!


Congratulations to Christopher Hennighan (CS Junior) for winning this competition!
