Hi All.
Applications for Good is supporting a *global call for apps for android* that
empower young women in leadership and mentorship, jobs and
entrepreneurship, education and conflict resolution. Applications that best
satisfy the competition criteria <http://appstoempower.org/rules.html> will
receive cash prizes and the opportunity to have their apps pre-loaded on
Datawind’s Ubislate educational tablet. This contest is open to people
everywhere. http://appstoempower.org/

Agnite Education, American Digital University, Applications for Good,
BluWorld, Datawind, Equal Access International and the United Nations
Office for Partnerships are partners in Apps to Empower. The competition
starts now with an *April 30th, 2013 deadline*. Winners announced in July

Datawind CEO Suneet Tuli said, “Our goal is to feature apps on our tablets
for young women in developing countries who seek to become leaders in their
communities; to be mentored by some of the best leaders currently in
business and government; to learn how to start businesses; find meaningful
work; and gain a practical skill that can improve not only her life but the
lives of those in her community.”

Our esteemed panel of judges includes:

Hon. Sheila Copps, former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada
Geena Davis, Academy Award winner and founder of Geena Davis Institute on
Gender and Media
