Mobile App Contest

Saint Mary’s is continually developing mobile apps, and the best place to turn to for ingenuity, creativity, and out-of-the-box thinking is our students. For the past two years, we’ve invited our students to tell us what kind of mobile app will enrich their Saint Mary’s experience, and cheered them on as they’ve developed them. And we’re gearing up to do the same thing in the 2014-2015 academic year!

The Mobile App Contest consists of two phases: Phase One – Ideas and Phase Two – Development. Teams whose idea is selected in Phase One receive iPod Nanos and help developing their concept into a mobile application. In Phase Two, team members with the winning application receive an iPad mini and a one-course tuition waiver.

NOTE: Please check back soon for details on the next contest.
