Registration is now open for the second phase of the Adult Literacy XPRIZE, a $1 million, 15-month national competition! The second phase—the Communities Competition of the Adult Literacy XPRIZE—is designed to challenge organizations, communities, and individuals to recruit adults with low literacy skills to download and use apps that will engage and transform the lives of one million adult learners in the United States.
The first phase of the Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE, presented by Dollar General Literacy Foundation, challenged teams to develop mobile applications for smart devices that would produce significant increases in literacy skills among participating adult learners. In June, XPRIZE selected winning apps from five finalist teams (and the LINCS Community heard from them!).
The second phase needs your innovative ideas for reaching low-literate adults that are seeking to improve their English reading skills.
The deadline to register your team is December 8, 2018.
Be among the first to enter the Communities Competition. (Check out this discussion thread in the Integrating Technology Group for ideas, support, and encouragement!) Participating in the XPRIZE is free, and you’ll receive proven literacy apps to distribute to adult learners. Your team will have the chance to compete for a share of $1,000,000 and transform one million lives through literacy.
