Swift Student Challenge for WWDC 2021 Commences

Earlier today, Apple announced its annual Worldwide Developers Conference as a virtual event given the COVID-19 precautions. Along with that announcement, Apple announced the Swift Student Challenge. All students can apply under the following criteria:

  • Be 13 years of age or older, or the equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction (for example, 16 years of age in the European Union);
  • Has registered for free with Apple as an Apple developer or is a member of the Apple Developer Program; and
  • Fulfill one of the following requirements:
    • Enroll in an accredited academic institution or official homeschool equivalent;
    • a STEM organization’s educational curriculum;
    • an Apple Developer Academy; or
    • Have graduated from high school or equivalent within the past 6 months and be awaiting acceptance or have received acceptance to an accredited academic institution.

As for last year, the objective for this contest is to “create an interactive scene in a Swift playground that can be experienced within three minutes.” Apple encourages students to be creative. They may use templates that Swift Playgrounds provide for inspiration.
