We are excited to announce that our registration for the contest is now OPEN! Teams of high school and college students across the United States, up to graduate level, are invited to participate in this virtual contest to design and create mobile applications to support individuals with autism spectrum disorder, their family members and caregivers.
SPARK contestants will have the opportunity to submit for “best overall app” for a cash prize of $25,000. Other prizes that will be awarded to individuals/teams are in the categories of best app design ($1,000), best prototype app ($2,000) and best production-level app ($5,000). These three prizes will be awarded separately for high school, undergraduate and graduate individuals/teams.
No experience in mobile app development or mobile friendly websites is required to enter. The SPARK contest is looking for the best ideas, concepts, and creativity to support SPARK’s mission. Technical resources and autism experts will be available for assistance throughout the contest.
