Know Before You Go – CA Booth Exhibitors and Presenters


  • Companies may not use this event as a platform to distribute offers of employment, but may distribute information about internships and scholarship programs.  It is our expectation that participating companies are doing so in a volunteer capacity with sole intention to inspire high school students to pursue college and career in computer science fields.
  • Booth exhibitors/vendors are prohibited from collecting student information, including emails. However, you are free to give out materials to students so they may contact you on their own.
  • There will be photographers present at the event.  By participating in and entering the event, exhibitors consent to being photographed and acknowledge that these photographs may be used in any Microsoft Philanthropies or TEALS materials relating to the CS Fair
