9th-Annual INCubatoredu National Pitch
The INCubatoredu National Pitch invites student teams to submit to pitch their businesses and compete for funding at a national level. Each team competing in the National Pitch must have completed the INCubatoredu program, and be nominated by their school. This is a unique opportunity for INCubatoredu student teams to level up skills to compete for real funding from a panel of startup business investors at the national level.
MobileMakersEdu Build Your Own App
This contest invites MobileMakersEdu students to work independently or with up to two other MME students to build an app that solves a problem they care about. This is an out-of-the-classroom contest that encourages current MobileMakersEdu students to develop their own app which makes use of a new framework or Swift concept not covered in the MobileMakersEdu course. This app will demonstrate their knowledge of the Swift programming language and Xcode. Students submit their app along with a video, and three entries will win awesome prizes!
The GritGrant™️ Award
The McKenzie Family Foundation, in partnership with Uncharted Learning, is offering $2,500 grants to four high school students who demonstrate and personify perseverance and grit. Grit is inspirational. It comes from passion, perseverance, and a never-quit attitude. The McKenzie Foundation wants to encourage student passion and perseverance when things seem too tough to keep going. Letters of recommendation should be submitted by the student's teacher, and no minimum GPA is required.
