Westchester mobile apps contest to begin on Friday

More than 275 high school and college students in the tristate region will compete in this year’s Westchester Smart Mobile App Development Bowl.
The contest will begin on Friday at Westchester County Center, White Plains, with a pep rally and workshops.
Students will be challenged to develop mobile apps that improve some aspect of life for people who are at least 65 years old.
Students will compete on teams, and those who have registered for the event individually will be assigned to a team.
On March 3, teams will present their apps at Pace University to evaluators from academia and industry who have content and technical expertise.
Apps will be judged on creativity, functionality and usability.
The judging and awards ceremony will be held at Pace on April 28. Cash, tech gear and paid internships will be awarded.
Thirty high schools, 10 colleges and a team from Scotland are registered.
The contest is sponsored by the county Office of Economic Development and Pace’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems.
