With the barriers to entry diminished students are creating their first apps the way they used to create their first compositions. As part of this year’s Mobile Apps Showdown at CES 2014, The Kay Family Foundation, a grant-making foundation located in Orange County, California created a special scholarship fund to honor outstanding achievement by a young student entrepreneur who had developed a mobile app. Two winners will receive a $5,000 scholarship each.

The world is calling for a new generation of transformative leaders with a strong command of science and technology, entrepreneurial and creative thinking, communication savvy, and ethical core values,” said Steven Kay, founder of the Kay Family Foundation. “Our Foundation is interested in championing a demand-driven surge of 21st century global leaders.

Entries from around the world are being accepted now through December 20, 2013. The winning entries will be showcased by the students at CES 2014 during the Mobile Apps Showdown, a live demonstration taking place at CES on January y 9, 2014 at 12:30 pm PT in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

About

MOBILE APPS SHOWDOWN
LVCC, North Hall
Competition: January 9, 2014, Room N255

The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where you're asked to weigh in on the apps you think have what it takes to make it. For the months leading up to the 2013 CES, we'll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We're platform agnostic, so if it's mobile, it's in the competition.
