Children are fantastic, from the moment they are born they start learning. They have their unique view, opinions, and they’re not afraid to express them with support. To a child anything is possible they believe they can reach the sky, overcome any challenge and become whatever they want.
Don’t Miss Out On Verizon’s Innovation App Challenge
Since 2013 Verizon’s App Challenge national level winners have collaborated with amazing engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Mobile Learning to turn their concepts into a real mobile app. To check out some of these fabulous apps, you can visit the Verizon Innovation App Challenge website.
This year the Fan Favorite and Best in Nations winners are yet again working with Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Mobile Learning partners to create and code their concepts into working apps. You can’t download these apps yet, but you will be able to download and see them in action come June.

How to enter the Verizon App Challenge?
Submissions will open in August 2016. In the meantime you’ll need to gather your team, make sure everyone reads and fully understands the rules, register, agree on the problem you want to solve and get to work.
Non-profit or organizations and schools will need to create teams with 5 to 7 people. They will also need to include an employee or teacher who is from the organization sponsoring the team to register and advise them along the way. The team will then need to make a video that is three minutes long answering the provided questions and submit your work for a chance to win the Verizon App Challenge.
