Announcing the Swift Student Challenge 2024

Apple is proud to support and uplift the next generation of student developers, creators, and entrepreneurs. The Swift Student Challenge has given thousands of students the opportunity to showcase their creativity and coding capabilities through app playgrounds, and build real-world skills that they can take into their careers and beyond. From connecting their peers to mental health resources to identifying ways to support sustainability efforts on campus, Swift Student Challenge participants use their creativity to develop apps that solve problems they’re passionate about.

We’re releasing new coding resources, working with community partners, and announcing the Challenge earlier than in previous years so students can dive deep into Swift and the development process — and educators can get a head start in supporting them.

Applications will open in February 2024 for three weeks.

New for 2024, out of 350 overall winners, we’ll recognize 50 Distinguished Winners for their outstanding submissions and invite them to join us at Apple in Cupertino for three incredible days next summer.
