Apple giving away 150 WWDC tickets to student coders

13.04.24-Scholarship

If you fancy yourself an up-and-coming developer and you’re 13 or older, you could win the chance to attend this year’s WWDC! Apple has announced that it will grant 150 student coders entrance to this year’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference. If you head over to the WWDC 2013 website and click on “Students” tab at the top, you’ll see a ton of information about scholarships and rules for entry.

In order to enter, you have to submit a self-built application that shows off your development projects, educational and/or professional background, tech skills, and interests. You’ve also got to write an essay. It seems like a key here is to be creative, as the iPhone maker explains that,

“Submissions will be judged on technical accomplishment, creativity of ideas expressed in the app and essay questions, and technical/work experience. If there is a tie between applicants in the final judging process, Apple will base its final decision on the creativity of ideas expressed in the Student Scholarship application.”

Also, you can only enter if you’re a member of the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer University Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program. (Keep in mind that minors who share an Apple Dev account with a parent are allowed to apply.)

If this sounds like your kind of think, Apple will be begin accepting entries on April 29 at 9 a.m. Pacific and continue up until May 2 at 5 p.m. The winners will be posted on May 16. Good luck!
