We collaborated with Women of AT&T, Ucensys, the Technology Association of Georgia, The New School, and Georgia Blockchain to challenge 100 high school students from five schools to create something innovative for their community.

These bright students endured a 12-hour process that included them interviewing first responders from Atlanta Fire and Rescue, Atlanta Police Department, and Grady EMS. Once students completed three hours of interviews using the Design Thinking Process, they engaged in ideation to develop a mobile application for first responders that would run on AT&T's first responder network.

Participants competed for $10,000 in scholarships and the opportunity to help those who have been commissioned to protect and serve our community have access to the latest technology to do their jobs. The students did an excellent job representing themselves, their schools, and their community.
