👏 5/22 - 6/2: Explore the Fair, Give Feedback & Support
Great innovation requires collaboration, reflection and a community of peers and mentors who give lots of support.
50+ volunteer judges with careers in applied media and technology from organizations including AWS, Dell Technologies, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Verizon will review projects and provide mentorship to student teams.
At the bottom of each student project page is a feedback form where anyone (not just official judges) can share encouraging emojis, comments, ideas and questions.

More About Emoti-Con
Emoti-Con is NYC's 15th Annual Youth Digital Media & Technology Challenge- a project fair for students across NYC who believe in digital innovation as a tool for positive change in the world around them. Since 2009, more than 3000 teens (87% BIPOC and/or Latin/x) have participated!
Emoti-Con is a culminating celebration of the creative work produced all year after school programs from organizations within the Hive NYC Learning network (like Global Kids, New-York Historical Society, Educational Video Center- and more) and in classrooms within public schools through CS4ALL NYC, Mouse Design League and many other DOE programs.
Emoti-Con is designed, planned and run by young innovators. The event has been developed through a unique collaboration between youth designers, an alumni committee and NYC youth-serving organizations from the Hive NYC Learning Network who form the Emoti-Con Steering Committee: Code Nation, DreamYard, Global Kids, and Mouse.
