The Verizon Foundation, in partnership with the Technology Student Association, have launched the 2013-2014 Innovative App Challenge, giving middle and high school students in South Florida and across the country a chance to develop a concept for a mobile app and bring it to market. Prizes include Samsung tablets, cash grants of $20,000 for the winners’ schools and the opportunity to team up with app development experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab to build and bring their apps to life. Verizon will help winning teams bring their app to the Google Play store. Submissions will be accepted through Dec. 3.
