Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who is eligible for the contest?

A: Arkansas girls in grades 6-12 who are passionate about honing their technology skills are eligible to submit a project. Limit, one submission per project, 1-4 girls may work on a project.

Q: Is the contest only open to girls who participated in the Girls of Promise Coding Summits?

A: No, they don’t. There are TONS of girls across our state who are totally into tech but, whether because we just didn’t have enough room for everyone, they didn’t learn of it in time, or the schedules didn’t work out, weren’t able to attend the summit.

Q: Does my submission have to be fully implemented?

A: While submissions are weighted by level of completion, we will accept demos.

Q: If I'm selected as a finalist, how do I get a shot at winning?

A: Each finalist will present her tech submission at the 2020 Girls of Promise® conference on the evening of April 2.

When presenting your project, consider the following: What is it? What inspired you? How was it made? What technology skills did you use? Who does it benefit and how? (Don’t forget to tell everyone the basics: who you are, how old you are, and what school you go to!)
