Tech for Good Competition
Girls are invited to develop an app, website, computer program, 3D printer template, or anything else “tech” that they’re inspired to create – as long as it addresses a problem in their community. Each submission must either directly benefit, or provide a service on behalf of a nonprofit organization, church, school, or government agency. In a nutshell, use your tech skills to make something that helps others.
Judges select five finalists who will be invited to visit Little Rock on Thursday April 2nd where they will meet community leaders, tour companies, and present to our conference of 200 8th grade girls who will select a winner at the end of the night! If you have additional questions, please visit our FAQ page.

Criteria for Evaluation
Each submission must be technology-based and will be judged on the following criteria:
- Create Tech:
- Technical skill, creativity, and ingenuity.
- Do Good:
- Level of completion.
- Likelihood of implementation to fulfill purpose.
- Communicate Well:
- Inclusion of inspiration, creation process, skills utilized.
- Clarity of purpose.
- Clearly identified intended audience(s) to use/benefit from project.
- Clarity of instructions and ease of use for intended audience.
- Grammar and spelling.
- Demonstration of outreach to intended beneficiary (provide endorsements such as personal reference and/or letter of recommendation).
- Focus on Skill, Not Age:
- Technology is an amazing thing in that sometimes the younger we are when we begin to learn, the faster we excel at it. For that reason, submissions will be weighted by criteria stated above instead of the age of the creator.
