The National BDPA Mobile App Showcase, co-sponsored by McDonald's and State Farm Insurance, allows student application developers the opportunity to participate in a competition that allows them to an opportunity to test their talents against others and develop a working, functional mobile application, at no cost to themselves. The applications being showcased will represent three different application categories (i.e. business, personal productivity, and gaming). Each category will have stringent requirements to be met in advance to the showcase.
College and high school students have the opportunity to participate in this 2-day event in conjunction with the 2016 National BDPA Technology Conference held in Atlanta, GA. The focus of this event includes development on Android & iOS smartphone operating systems.
Each student's projects will be judged in two major categories and four sub-categories. The competition and showcase are open to high school and college students. Their projects will be assessed by a panel of judges prior to the conference. Monetary awards sponsored by State Farm will be given to the top high school and college participants. The awards will be presented at the awards presentation during the 2016 National BDPA Technology Conference Banquet Ceremony. Each participant will be recognized with a Certificate of Participation for their effort.
