The Pitt Mobile App Challenge is Back and Better than Ever

Thursday, December 22, 2016 - 12:20


The Pitt Mobile App Challenge gives Pitt undergraduate students at all campuses the chance to share their mobile app ideas with the Pitt community and the opportunity to win some terrific prizes, including $4,000, $2,000, $1,000, or $500 worth of Amazon gift cards! 

This year's App Challenge asks students to tackle one of five specific challenges. Once you choose your challenge, you can participate in one of two categories:

  • Show It: Create a visual mockup of your app that shows what it would look like and how it would work. The winning entry receives $2,000 in Amazon gift cards.  
  • Code It: Build a working prototype of your app that functions on a mobile device. The winning entry receives $4,000 in Amazon gift cards.  

You can work alone or as part of a team. All winners will be determined by a combination of student voting and scores awarded by a panel of judges.

Get started today! Visit the Pitt Mobile App Challenge Web page to choose your challenge, download the submission template, and review the rules. You’ll also find resources to help you get started building your app. Submissions open February 1. Good luck!
