About the event
Students competed for the chance to participate in a Job Shadow Program of a lifetime+ VIP access to Fashion Week in February 2017 + the opportunity to see their iPhone case manufactured and sold in retail.
The My Social Canvas #DesignHackathon invited 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 the product. Proceeds from the sales of the winning team's cases will go back to supporting Girls In STEM. A formal announcement of the student finalists will be released in January of 2017.
