Enter Your Brilliant Idea in the Verizon Innovative App Challenge

Pin It
Are you always the first person to know about the latest awesome app? Do you have tons of ideas for your own? Here's your chance to make your tech dreams a reality. Verizon has launched the Verizon Innovative App Challenge, and it's the perfect way to develop your brilliant ideas for real.

If you're in middle school or high school or have a sponsoring non-profit organization, you can join the Verizon App Challenge. Here's how it works: you assemble a team of five to seven participants as interested in app creation as you are, as well as a teacher or other faculty member willing to be the team's adviser. To enter the contest, each team will come up with an app idea that can tackle problems that they see around their community, specifically issues that somehow relate to them. The team will then explain their project in the form of essay questions and a three-minute video hashtagged with the contest's #VZAppChallenge tag.

Every student who participates in the contest will learn great team building skills and get to work on a real STEM proposal, so entering the contest alone is pretty worthwhile. If your team does get accepted into a higher round, however, you could be looking at an even bigger prize - so why not enter here and give it a shot?

Best In State winners will receive a $5,000 grant for their school, mobile tablets for the team members, and the ability to compete for People's Choice Winner, which will receive the same benefits as the Best In Nation team. The Best In Nation team will receive the most perks: the team will receive an additional $15,000 grant for their school or out-of-school program, coding training from MIT experts, and an all-expenses-paid trip for each team member next summer. Sweet, right?But don't just take our word for it: Bill Nye the Science Guy is the spokesperson for the contest, and if there's anyone you can trust with STEM stuff, it's this guy. Enter now and up your tech game - because what's better than scrolling through an app that you built, right?
