Applications are open for Technovation Girls Competition 2021. The program aims to reach and welcome students and mentors who may not otherwise be able to learn and build technology due to racial, economic, social, and cultural barriers and discrimination. Our programs run in over 100 countries with historical and existing biases against women and other underrepresented genders, in particular.

You can either participate as a student or a mentor

Technovation Girls Students

They create solutions to community problems using technology. As a student you will:

  • Identify a problem that matters to your community.
  • Learn to code an app that solves the problem, and develop other skills along the way.
  • Collaborate with peers and learn from industry mentors.

Technovation Girls Mentors

They guide the next generation of global problem-solvers. As a mentor you will:

  • Support one or more teams on their learning journey.
  • Develop skills while aspiring girls to lead and make change.
  • Network and share best practices with peers from Salesforce, Google, Cisco, Adobe, HSBC, GM, AT&T, & more.


Any girl or young woman (ages 10-18) interested in Technovation Girls is eligible to participate. The program welcomes all transgender people and also those who identify as non-binary or gender nonconforming and want to be part of a female-identified environment, including student participants.

To join the competition, a girl must create or join a team on the online platform, have a parent/guardian sign the consent form and meet the following Student Participation criteria:

  • All students must be between the ages of 10 to 18 as of August 1, 2021.
  • All students must identify as female, trans, nonbinary or gender nonconforming. Students who are assigned male at birth and self-identify as male cannot enter the competition.
  • Teams are composed of 1 to 5 students. Students can only join 1 team. There is no limit on the number of mentors per team.
  • Competition Divisions are based on the age of the oldest student on the team.
  • Students can participate in Technovation Girls for multiple seasons until they reach the age of 18
  • Students can work with the same team members and mentors, but they cannot submit the materials to competition over multiple years.
  • Teams can explore the same problem, but the app prototype must be different each year.
