3 WEEKS TO GO and we NEED YOUR HELP!
Help us make Appapalooza the most SPECTACULAR event the girls have ever experienced!
For the past 10 weeks, 150 girls between the ages of 10 and 19 have been participating in the Technovation Challenge. Working in teams of 5, these girls are dreaming up, designing, coding and pitching mobile phone apps to help their communities. The top teams will fly to Silicon Valley to present their mobile application to venture capitalists for the opportunity to win $10,000 and assistance in commercializing their app.
On May 3rd, these girls will attend Appapalooza at the Minneapolis Convention Center, where they will show off their hard work. Our panel of judges will review their apps, presentations and business plans to choose the top Technovation[MN] winners.
We need PRIZES! This year, EACH and EVERY girl will take home a “Power-UP pack,” filled with goodies and prizes to commemorate their participation in the Technovation Challenge. In addition, a total of 7 teams will come away as winners – 4 of which will be able to advance to the Semi-Finals and one step closer to Silicon Valley –(3 Middle School and 1 high School). The other 3 categories are Best Entrepreneurial Score, Best Technical Score, and Best Presentation Score.
All donated prizes are 100% tax deductable via in-kind donations. Prize Ideas? Contact Annette Evans at: 612-718-8422
