Technovation invites teams of girls from all over the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology.

We welcome 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 our competition, a girl must create or join a team on our online platform, have a parent/guardian sign the consent form and meet the following Student Participation criteria:
1. All students must be between the ages of 10 to 18 as of August 1, 2020;
2. All students must identify as female, trans, nonbinary or gender nonconforming;
3. Teams are composed of 1 to 5 students. Students can only join 1 team;
4. Competition Divisions are based on the age of the oldest student on the team;
5. Students can work with the same team members and mentors, but they cannot submit the materials to competition over multiple years.

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others;
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests; yes, tell these storiies too... - they will enlighten and inspire your network.

Thanks, Ana. Technovation has a great program and Sophie is actually a judge/leader for it. I've judged once, too, and thought it was great. Thanks for sharing.
