Cool opportunity for Scholarship money for all grades The Maine App Challenge is an opportunity for Maine high school students to build a mobile application, make connections with professional software developers, and compete for $10,000 in college scholarships. The requirements are simple: build a mobile app using the development platform of your choice. Submit the app with a video explanation by May 6th. Tyler Technologies, a local technology company, brings the latest tech to the public sector. Tyler's software is used by more than 150 school districts in Maine. We hope this experience might turn a student's casual interest in software development into a college major, internship, and eventual career in the Maine computer science and technology industry. It’s also an opportunity to help make an impact in your community by filling a need with a mobile app.
