About the event
Students competed for the chance to participate in a Job Shadow Program of a lifetime + the opportunity to see their iPhone case sold in retail stores and on our online store.
The My Social Canvas #DesignHackathon involved female students pursuing degrees in fashion, graphic design, technology, and business, in an effort to increase awareness, participation and funding for girls in STEM programs across the country. The final deliverable from each team was an iPhone case design, an e-commerce site to sell their product, and a marketing plan to launch their product. 10% of proceeds from the sales of the winning team's cases went back to the student designers, helping fund their education.
#GirlCode cases now available at Verizon.com and in Verizon stores nationwide!
