Verizon Innovative App Challenge

Surely you know students who simply have an idea for a unique mobile app that could solve a problem for their school or community. If so, it could mean $20,000 for their school!

The Verizon Foundation, in partnership with the Technology Student Association (TSA), is offering the 2013-2014 Verizon Innovative App Challenge, giving middle and high school students across the country a chance to develop a mobile app idea and bring it to market.  The free mobile app concept competition aims to engage students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects and empower them to create STEM-related app concepts that solve real-world problems.  Again, a good idea is all it takes.

Students have a chance to win Samsung Galaxy Note tablets courtesy of Samsung Telecommunications America, cash grants of up to $20,000 for their school, and the opportunity to team up with app development experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab to build and bring their apps to life. Verizon will help winning teams bring their app to the Google Play store, available for download.
