Amazon has teamed up with Pharrell Williams’ YELLOW and Georgia Tech to launch a new music remix competition to inspire students to pursue Computer Science. All middle and high school students in the U.S. and Canada can participate in “Your Voice is Power.” The first round of the competition will run from January 19 through March 12. The second round of the competition will run from March 15 through June 4. Winners will be chosen based on the quality of music, complexity and organization of their code, and their inclusion of thoughtful messaging and calls to action about the importance of racial justice.
Teachers and students can visit AmazonFutureEngineer.com to get started, and for a full list of rules, prizes, scoring guidelines, and accompanying curriculum.
