CITRIS's 2014 Mobile App Challenge Results

The 2014 CITRIS Mobile App Challenge concluded Friday, May 16th with Music Notes taking home the Grand Prize. This year, the challenge was part of the School of Engineering's annual Innovate to Grow event where students showcase projects they've been working on all semester. 

The event began with a poster session in the Gym where students explained and demonstrated their apps to judges and attendees. Afterwards, the finalist teams each gave 6 minute pitches to a room full of observers and judges. 

Deliberations were tense, but in the end, the judges picked Music Notes to take the Grand Prize of $5000.
