Tell us your awesome app idea and WIN!


Okay, all you creative and entrepreneurial Griffith students, it’s time to put your thinking caps on. We have an important question we’d like you to answer, and time is running out.

What app would greatly improve your life as a student? Submit your awesome app idea by Friday 31 March and you could win $1500. That’s right, a whopping $1500 just for an idea.

The catch is – the idea has to be brilliant and impress our hard to impress judges. Your idea will have to be the best of the best.

But don’t worry, there’s more than one prize. Second place is still quite lucrative with $750 up for grabs, and third place will receive a respectable $500.

Concerned about your lack of coding skills? Don’t be. You don’t actually have to build it, or do anything remotely techy. You just need to brainstorm a brilliant app, go to the Hack-a-thon web page, and submit it. Easy peasy and potentially very profitable.

Quick, get your entries in today (yes, plural. You can enter as many times as you like). Entries close at 5pm on Friday. Winners will be contacted and announced via Library social media.

But that’s not it. What good is an idea without some action? Once the ideas have been collected and winners have been chosen, there will be Student Hack-a-thon event.

That’s when we give your app ideas to a bunch of clever students (with coding skills), feed them some pizza, and get them to develop an app in two-days. Head to the Hack-a-thon webpage for details.
