    Along with the announcement of its Worldwide Developers Conference recently, Apple also laid out rules for a “scholarship” that will grant 150 students (of age 13 or above) to attend the annual event. A link featured at the top of Apple’s main WWDC 2013 webpage points to the official “Students” section, which details the scholarship, eligibility, submissions and restrictions. Interested full or part-time students must submit a self-built app that highlights an entrant’s development projects, educational and professional backgrounds, technical skills and interests. An essay is also required with Apple putting an emphasis on creativity. The official rules regarding application judging mention the following:

    Submissions will be judged on technical accomplishment, creativity of ideas expressed in the app and essay questions, and technical/work experience. If there is a tie between applicants in the final judging process, Apple will base its final decision on the creativity of ideas expressed in the Student Scholarship application.
    It should be noted that eligible students must also be paid members of the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer University Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program. Minors who are sharing a Registered Apple Developer account with a parent are also allowed to apply. Entries are open from April 29 at 9:00 AM Pacific to May 2 at 5:00pm with results going out on May 16th.

    Is there a thread where devs can discuss their applications for this?
