WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Any student can apply! We don't care how old you are or what type of career you may be pursuing, but you have to be ready to work on teams, think creatively and try something different. We tend to see students interested in software development, new technology, engineering, graphic design, business, marketing, sales, leadership, strategy, writing and project management. But really, anything goes!
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
We'll reveal more information on the challenge and the supporting partners in the coming weeks, but rest assured that both will be good! You'll be working with several different teams of students from across the region doing human-centered problem solving utilizing emerging technology. Don't let that intimidate you - there's no prior knowledge or experience needed to participate. Final presentations will be given to a public audience of local business leaders, community members, friends and family. Reception and networking follows.
