Thanks to all of the NSBE Jr. members who submitted their animated stories for the 2013 NSBE Bridge 3-D Computer Programming Contest. In this, our second contest, it was exciting to see the creativity of our pre-college students in action once again. Choosing a winner wasn’t easy!

The contest winners follow. We also extend a special “Thank you!” to Caitlin Keller of Washington University in St. Louis, creator of the Looking Glass software used in this competition.
