Oct. 11, 2016 -- Students are invited to participate in the fourth-annual UNM/CNM Mobile App Contest, which provides students the opportunity to develop and apply coding skills to make useful mobile applications. The contest is designed to inspire students to take their creativity to the next level, develop coding skills and to yield apps that can improve the experience of our students and community.

UNM and CNM faculty and staff will provide support to these coding efforts through workshops, mentoring and making development environments available in student labs. The contest will also provide motivated students support to commercialize any market worthy apps that result. UNM and the City of Albuquerque have invested in open data sets which are available to enrich the coding experience and make the apps more useful to users. Data sets available include UNM events, class schedule data, campus locations, Route 66 images, bike paths, list of local businesses, and more. 

Prizes include $5000 for 1st Place, $2500 for 2nd Place, $1000 for 3rd Place and $1000 to highlight “Women in Technology!” Applications are currently being accepted and eligible students must be currently enrolled or have been enrolled and successfully completed their coursework between Aug. 1 and Dec. 31.
