Google And Snapchat Made A Teen Coding Contest To Find The Next Official Snap Lens
Google and Snapchat are holding a coding contest for teens interested in making their own Snap lens
Google’s Made with Code and Snapchat collaborated on #MyFutureMe, a new contest for teen participants to win a chance to create their own Snap lens. The contest was created for teens in the age range of 13 to 18.
Those interested must visit Made with Code’s website to complete a coding activity and build a Snapchat Geofilter. The Geofilter should express what the participant imagines the future will look like. Once completed, they must submit a 100-word statement about the Geofilter, their ideal future and how they plan to get there. The motivation behind #MyFutureMe was to show youth the importance of code and how it affects their everyday lives, as many of them likely use Snapchat on a daily basis.
The winner of the contest will flown out to a TEDWomen conference in November, where they will develop their new lens with engineers from Google and Snap.
