11 days left to submit your app to the WH Equal Futures Challenge!

The countdown is on – just 11 days left until the January 19th deadline – and we can’t wait to see the apps that you’ve built!

Over the past few weeks, we’ve hosted the first-ever White House Codeathon…and this weekend folks across the country hosted codeathons in their own cities for this app challenge. 

Our fantastic panel of judges – including the creator of Twitter, Jack Dorsey; Academy-Award Winning Actor, Geena Davis; and Director of Engineering at Facebook, Jocelyn Goldfein – are eagerly awaiting your submissions.

So keep on coding…and we look forward to seeing your apps on January 19th!

As always, if you have any questions feel free to email us at
