Recently me and 2 friends put together a submission entry to a technology award competition in our city, hosted by the mayor. It is open to thousands of schools in the state, and can be entered in groups of 3 or less. After spending a couple hours putting together a submission, we entered our submission and hoped for the best.
The app we submitted was something we spoke about a while ago, its an app tailed towards students to help them study better. We made the program, but it was too simple and didn't really meet up to the expectations we wanted it to. So, we are restarting the app and using the MTA to get people to know about it, because it is a startup program.
After 10 days, the results were given back to us. Out of about 400+ entries, we somehow made it into the top 12. This was awesome news! So, what's next? They're bringing in 4 mentors, some from universities and others famous successful people to teach us how to market, develop and make our app successful. During this time, we have to continue developing our app and plan for a speech where we market our app to judges. At the end of the competition, the top three voted by the judges will get:
- 3rd - Three Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 2 speakers
- 2nd - Three iPad Air 2 4G 16GB
- 1st - Three Samsung Galaxy S7 4GX mobile phones and three Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 2 speakers, as well as $5,000 to the winning school
I'm not really in this competition for prizes, but an S7 would be nice ;). So, what do you guys think? Any suggestions for our speech/presentation? We have to talk about our app with a powerpoint behind us, and we have to make an advertisement video for it. Thanks guys! :)
