This year, BNSF is kicking off its annual Technology Awareness Day with a series of free online events for high-schoolers.

The railroad’s campaign, to be held Feb. 23-26 (4:30 p.m.-6 p.m. CST), aims to “educate high school students about careers in the technology field, and encourages attendees to design and develop their own technological solutions to real-world challenges that are judged at the events.” There will be four contests—Graphic Art, Video, Essay, and Mobile App/Website Design—with the theme “Living in a Virtual World.” Also included is a college fair.

For more information, visit the registration page on BNSF’s website. Students may register through Feb. 22.
