Sapna Cheryan was invited to the White House in December 2014 for Computer Science Education Week, where she got to meet President Obama,  Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith, and John Holdren, Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy. The White House issued a press release announcing a “computer science classroom design prize” based on her work on how to change environments to encourage more women to enter computer science.
