Here are some examples drawn from the everyday experiences of students, faculty, and staff. You don’t need to limit yourself to UChicago-specific ideas (but we’ll gladly accept those too!).
Valuable experience in rapid creativity, idea generation, and prototyping. Make your product a reality! Past student, faculty and staff entrants have also leveraged the skills they learned in their current jobs and interviews.

2019 App Challenge Lineup
2018 App Challenge Lineup
Students, faculty, staff, Alums, and now Polsky members can submit their app ideas for development year round.
And we do the heavy lifting (programming, that is) to build your idea in the meantime.
How do I win part of $10,000 in prizes?
If you're accepted and complete the requirements, we will build your app, which qualifies you for the end-of-year showdown (similar to our current App Challenge Finals). During the showdown you will compete with all other teams from that academic year. We’ve got $10,000 in prizes. Your idea could win you some serious cash!
ideas and counting!
