Mendix Student App Contest

As a student, we know you’re busy trying to balance all your responsibilities – completing class assignments, participating in extracurricular activities, getting real-world experience to add to your resume, and making enough money to pay for your education. We at Mendix understand that better than most; the founders started Mendix while enrolled in university. We want to reward those students who are balancing it all with an opportunity to win cash prizes to help you pay for school expenses, and bragging rights to add to your resume.

Our Fall 2017 Mendix Student App Contest invites students from around the world to build an app using the Mendix low-code application development platform and share that app with us. Whether you’re learning Mendix in the classroom from your professor and want to submit your Mendix app from class, you have to create an app for a class assignment and can use any technology you choose, you’re simply creating an app for fun, or you use Mendix to create an app for your job or extracurricular club, you can submit it to the Mendix Student App Contest for a chance to win.
