Due January 17th, 2019 - Calling all middle schoolers! Don't miss this unique opportunity to win a $10,000 scholarship and the chance to transform your ideas to reality! The challenge: how can we improve the world?

Much of your life is likely spent using technology. Technology improves our lives by solving problems, making tasks easier, and by providing entertainment. So, how would you solve a real-world problem with a digital solution? Submit your idea today!

Compete as individuals, or in teams of up to four students, and submit a one-to-two-minute video or written description explaining their digital solution to a real-world problem. Check out idea starters and planning resources to get started with your challenge entry!

Remember:
  • All you need is an idea: Entries should be an idea or concept. Students do not need to execute the solution.
  • Make your video selfie style: We're interested in the substance of the idea, not the quality of your video, so feel free to use your phone and take a selfie video.

Don’t wait! Submit your idea today.
Digital solutions should be connected to problems related to TCS’ social responsibility pillars of Health, Our Planet, and Education. Digital solutions could include:
  • Mobile apps
  • Websites
  • Wearable technology
  • Smart home devices
  • Other ideas that use technology
