Contest Rules


Current U-M students, faculty and staff are eligible to participate, including temporary employees. Teams comprised of eligible members are encouraged, although only one person per team may submit the application.


You may submit as many apps as you choose for iOS (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch), Android, Windows Phone or other mobile Web apps. App ideas or concepts are not eligible for submission. Either your app must be available for download from an App Store or you must have a working prototype you can share with us. A panel of experts from U-M and challenge sponsors will judge your app based on creativity, usability and utility.
