Registration is open for the Emoti-Con Virtual Project Fair (Apply by 5/22)

We have officially opened registration for the 12th annual Emoti-Con NYC Digital Media & Technology Challenge (now a Virtual Project Fair). Submit your middle and high school projects by May 22nd to be included in this city-wide competition.

Why Participate?

  • Emoti-Con is a chance for us to celebrate and showcase the innovations & ideas of teens across NYC.
  • Judges from CS, STEM and design professions will review and share feedback on each project. Judges will share how their project relates to college and career pathways.
  • Each project will be published and have its own webpage. Students can share their project page with parents, friends and mentors who can leave 👏 Emojis 👏 of encouragement and kudos on their work.
