In 2004 the Technology Education Foundation presented its first award to the UW–Madison’s DoIT Information Technology Academy (ITA). Launched in May 2000, ITA is a unique 4-year pre-college technology access and training program for under-served minority and disadvantaged students residing in the Madison metropolitan area.
The Technology Education Foundation’s donation help support ITA’s 2004 Digital Video Camp which enabled fifteen rising 10th grade students to receive audio & video editing training and equipment during the camp.
On August 13, 2004 these students exhibited their summer technology projects at a Recognition Program on the UW campus.
These were the creative multimedia projects:
Babygurl Rocky Layah
Bad Car Day
Madison Youth and What They Do
The Eggonian Empires – A Geraldo Story
Talky Tina’s Demise
Miss Teen ITA
Berbee was at ITA’s recognition program and had the distinct honor of presenting the 10th grade students with digital audio software and digital video cameras with which they can continue their learning experience.

Did you know that 100% of proceeds from the Berbee Derby go to the Madison-based Technology Education Fund (TEF)? The annual Thanksgiving Day event has become a family tradition for many. Fun event for all ages and levels.
