Get extra help with their Awards Entry 

This year we’ve completely revamped our Dashboard and Awards Entry Form to offer more guidance, tips, and support for students.  Students can now:

  • discover ‘top tips’ as they complete their form
  • access the Apps for Good course materials on their own, at any time
  • read guides, like ‘what the judges are looking for’ and ‘how to prepare’
  • attend virtual Office Hours to get support from former students

Create virtual teams to enter the Awards

On the dashboard, all Apps for Good Students can join a virtual team to work together with their classmates on their Awards Entry Form. One student should create the team, but all invited teammates are now able to join the team, view the form, and offer feedback.
