Introducing the Day One Challenge

We're seeking to showcase the most innovative high school minds across the state of Georgia and award grants totaling over $7,500.

Interested? Get started here.

What is the Day One Challenge?

The Day One Challenge is open to students in accredited Georgia high schools and this year’s contest will focus on artificial intelligence. Teams will have until April 5 to submit their solutions. The submissions will be framed in a PRFAQ format, which is the way Amazon approaches internal ideation for new products and solutions.

Through public, peer, and expert voting, ten teams will be selected as finalists to gather on May 5 with mentors from industry and academic institutions for a daylong innovation summit at Tech Square, the heart of Atlanta’s tech scene. Over $7,500 in grants will be awarded amongst the finalists.

Day One 2018 Challenge Statement

Artificial intelligence will change how we function as a society in many ways. How do you propose we use artificial intelligence by 2030 to fundamentally alter how we address one of these societal needs: education, health, or sustainability? What will be the benefits and consequences of your solution?
