Some young-app developers are getting a lesson in civic engagement.
From New York City to Seattle, city-sponsored apps contests are increasingly popping up to encourage the generation of innovative solutions to everyday problems — a welcome prospect for app developers and aspiring start-up founders alike.
Among various locales in Washington State, for instance, app makers can participate in the Evergreen Apps Challenge, a contest that closes on Sept. 6 and showers winners with $75,000 in prizes, including $20,000 in cash. App challenges have also been held in San Francisco, Chicago and Detroit, where a mobile program showcasing the Motor City’s public art — from graffiti to museum works — took top spot.Featured Posts, Updates and tagged featured.
