The White House is pleased to announce the judges of our Equal Futures App Challenge – a challenge to create apps that promote civic education and inspire girls to serve as leaders in our democracy. The full list of judges can be found in the post below and includes leaders such as Jack Dorsey, Creator and Co-Founder of Twitter and Founder and CEO of Square; Geena Davis, Academy-Award Winning Actor and Founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media; Jocelyn Goldfein, Director of Engineering at Facebook; Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and others.
And you don’t need to have coding skills yourself to participate – if you have an idea, you can find someone who does have those skills and work as a team to create an app. The deadline to submit apps for this challenge is January 12, 2013 – and you can learn more about the challenge and submit your apps on equalfutures.challenge.gov.
