Verizon App Challenge is Not a Hackathon but an Innovation Contest for Middle and High School Students
The Verizon Innovative Learning App Challenge allows middle and high school students to design real mobile apps with no coding required. Not only do participants have a chance to win prizes, the innovation contest promotes teamwork, creative problem solving, and entrepreneurship skills. Unlike a hackathon, there will be weeks to complete the challenge.
What Can You Win?
Teams in the Verizon App Challenge compete at the state, regional, and national level. Best in State winning teams get $5,000 for their school’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) budget and mobile tablets for each team member.
