TradingScreen Inc. and the MIT Enterprise Forum of New York announce the finalists for the second annual “Dream it. Code it. Win it." competition. The student coding competition was judged based on the quality of the problem being tackled as well as the solution, with the aim to promote creativity, diversity and literacy in the field of computer science.
