There will be pork barbecue, fried chicken, and all the fixin’s provided by Cooper’s BBQ. A vegetarian spread will also be provided by Neomonde. Save room for dessert - plenty of NC State’s premium Howling Cow ice cream!
We will also raffle the following awesome prizes and have sports equipment available for games! Raffle tickets will cost $1 per ticket with proceeds going to support future ACM/AITP activities.
Many thanks to this year’s event sponsors: Boeing, Cisco, Deutsche Bank Global Technology, EMC, McKesson, NetApp, Premiere Healthcare Alliance, Prometheus Group, Tekelec, the ePartners Program and the NC State Engineering Foundation.
As part of the Pig Pickin' we announce faculty and staff awards voted on by students. Please vote for your favorite professors in the ACM/AITP Faculty and Staff Awards! Please note that, to prevent a person from winning the same award two years in a row, votes for last year's winners will not be counted (they are not presented as an option). Please only vote once; multiple submissions by the same person will not count.
You can vote by accessing the form here. ACM/AITP Faculty Awards Ballot
We hope you will join us for this annual tradition!
