Telecommunications provider LIME is offering US$2,000 to the person who successfully creates a mobile application (App), and gets the approval of the competition judges.

“US$2000 goes out to the student who can deliver the best mobile app between now and when LIME launches 4G in April,” said General Manager of LIME, Leslie Jack in his address to students of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College at the launch of their state of the art computer lab recently.

The “build a mobile app” contest is open to secondary school students between 11 and 18 years, and will see the competitors creating apps that are expected to be developed on the Android or iOS platform, and can be uploaded to either iTunes, Google Play or Amazon.

The students will be judged on originality, creativity and overall educational value, straightforwardness and ease of use, and the student’s smart use of technological elements.

LIME’s Sales and Marketing Lead, Nikala Williams, said that after the app has been uploaded, competitors must send an email with their name, as well as the name of the app, and where the app can be found.

Emails must be sent to [email protected]

The deadline for submission is March 31, with a winner to be named after one month of judging.
