Important change to the rules

Thanks for supporting the NYC Schools Gap App Challenge! There’s been an important change to the challenge rules that you should be aware of.  

Installation files are now required

If you are submitting an app requiring download and installation, such as an app for iPad, or Mac or Windows desktop, you are now required to upload a ZIP file on the "Enter an Application" form including appropriate installation files.

If you are submitting a web or mobile web app, you don't need to upload any files.

For more information on the new requirement, please check out the FAQ page.

You can enter and update your submission at any time before the submission deadline at 5 p.m. EDT on April 10, 2013. Instructions on how to update your submission can be found here.


Join us February 5 at 4 p.m. EST for an interactive webinar. Steven Hodas, Executive Director of Innovate NYC Schools, and Clever will provide all the challenge details, answer your technical questions and offer best practices on integrating with school data. Space is limited. Register here.

Can't tune into the webinar? Email with "Gap App" in the subject line, and we'll respond as soon as we can.
