In the 1960’s Racine was identified as “Invention City”. More patents were created, on a per-capita basis, than anywhere else in the nation. Tech-Prize desires to replicate that energy and creativity to reclaim that title. As a first step, Racine competed in and won a national smart-city competition based on the vision of this community in the future.

With this background in mind, Tech-Prize desires to motivate applications that support the smart-city objectives – and we are open to any great ideas that you might have.

This year the Tech-Prize App Competition is focused on Smart-City applications. The Tech-Prize Smart City Problem Solving Challenge is an Open-Ended APP development competition. The objective of the competition is to promote and reward IT development Skills and Creativity while solving some pressing social and infrastructure challenges in our community. The Open-Ended Competition means the participants can participate even if their App is not completely Developed.

So…Bring your best creative App Dev ideas and compete for cash & scholarship prizes. Tech-Prize offers an opportunity to build your own amazing application and show it to the world!

Simply develop your application according to the rules (follow the link below) and submit it to participate in our annual event. Top participants walk away with scholarships to the University of Wisconsin, Parkside, and Gateway Technical College.
