2021 Global Technovation Girls Competition  ($10,000 prize)
Deadline: March 12, 2021

Every year, Technovation invites teams of young people from all over the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology.

Technovation Girls students create solutions to community problems using technology.

As a student you will:

  • Identify a problem that matters to your community
  • Learn to code an app that solves the problem, and develop other skills along the way!
  • Collaborate with peers and learn from industry mentors

Technovation Girls mentors guide the next generation of global problem-solvers.

As a mentor you will:

  • Support one or more teams on their learning journey
  • Develop skills while aspiring girls to lead and make change
  • Network and share best practices with peers from Salesforce, Google, Cisco, Adobe, HSBC, GM, AT&T, & more
