The Challenge

Each team will design, build, and demonstrate a mobile application to solve an everyday business challenge. Teams must provide their own cloud based platform for development and testing of their application, their own trial or production version of products used to develop their applications,1 and a database to successfully demonstrate the use cases for their app.


A $10,000 scholarship from InfoSystems and Skuid, to be split between the student team members, will be awarded to the team with the highest scored application. Other superlative prizes will include a private escape room experience from Escape Mission Chattanooga!


  • Teams must consist of 1 to 4 students from one school with one faculty advisor. Faculty members may advise more than one team, but students may not participate on more than one team.
  • Applications must be submitted by September 9.
  • $100 per team registration fee; email Olivia if your team needs assistance with fundraising ideas or financial resources.
  • Teams will be announced Sept 12.

I submitted my team’s application. Now what?

Wait for your faculty advisor to receive a notification by email on or before Sept 12 at 5 p.m. that your team has been selected. If your team’s application is rejected, the faculty advisor will receive an email detailing the reason for the rejection. Your faculty advisor may receive an email or phone call before Sept 12 if we have additional questions or need clarity on certain parts of the application.

What can I do to improve my team’s chances of being chosen?

Make sure your application is complete and includes all the necessary contact information and as much information about your individual team members as possible. Aside from that, choose your team members wisely! We’re looking for diverse groups of students with lots of creativity. Your application is your chance to tell us, if we have too many applicants, why your team should be chosen!
