Important reminder about the rules

Thanks for supporting the NYC Schools Gap App Challenge! As you wrap up your submission, we’d like to remind you of an important challenge rule.

Your submission may not violate any intellectual property rights. 

To be clear, it is not against the rules to use third-party tools, such as APIs, SDKs or other content/data, but you must follow the licensing requirements specified by each platform/creator.

Before you submit, please make sure that you own the rights to all parts of your submission, or are following the licensing requirements of any parts you may not own. This includes your submitted app itself, images, videos, music and any other materials you may use. For full details, please refer to the Official Rules


If you have any questions about this rule or the challenge in general, please shoot us an email at and include “Gap App” in the subject line.
