CoolTech Challenge


2018 marks the 10th Anniversary of the Cool Tech Challenge. The CoolTech Challenge engages teams of rising 9th through 12th graders in a school-to-school competition for the most unique mobile app, mobile ready website/website or a concept.  Teams are encouraged to be as creative and innovative as possible. Participants must work with a designated classroom advisor.  All submissions will be judged by industry professionals. 

Three winning teams will be selected and receive a combination of cash prizes, gift cards, and scholarships.  Winners will be announced and awards presented at the 6th Annual Passport to IT Careers event on March 2, 2018.  All student teams will be invited to exhibit their projects at the CoolTech Showcase as part of the Passport event at the Global Center for Health Innovation.  During the CoolTech Showcase, exhibitors will present to fellow students, college educators and employers.
