The Equal Futures App Challenge

The White House Council on Women and Girls has announced a contest for girls to create an app focused on political engagement. Apps may be designed for internet browsers, smartphones, feature phones, or as native Windows or Macintosh applications, and submissions are due by midnight on January 19th.

I attended an event at Springside/Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia where teams of girls were paired with developers to help put their ideas into action. It was inspiring and exciting.

If you know a girl or a team of girls who are up for the challenge, you can see more details on the White House’s website about the contest.
