Appy Go Lucky

Got an app design?
 Well, we’ve got just the contest for you as the Entrepreneurship Lab presents the Pace Mobile App Design Contest!

The challenge: To create a concept for a mobile app that demonstrates innovative design and meets user needs. 

The Entrepreneurship Lab is bringing you the Pace Mobile App Design Contest 2.0. Are you up for the task?

If so, submit a full app design using any tool (Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Publisher) or language (HTML, CSS, and Javascript). Screenshots from mobile emulators will also be accepted.

All Pace students are invited to participate and win $500, $250, and $100 cash prizes.

Please note that this is a design contest and not a development contest, so programming is not required. Register by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 21 and submit your design no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 4. Finalists will be chosen and announced on November 11 and a design showcase and student vote will determine the winner at the final event on December 5.

Last year, Seidenberg student Julie Gauthier’s We Go Together, an app to help people arrange and share their schedules for work, school, and play, took home the top prize. Do you have this year’s big app? Get to it.

The $3,000 Letter

Pen pals are fun. A $3,000 pen pal who can help you change legislation? Well, there isn’t the right word to describe that.

Passionate about a current public policy issue and want your elected officials to know about it? Project Pericles invites students from Pace  to participate in an opportunity to research, develop, and advocate their opinions on a current public policy issue. Students (in groups of two or more) with the best letters will be invited to attend the 2011 Debating for Democracy (D4D) National Conference being held on March 24 and 25 on Pace’s NYC Campus, and will present and discuss their letter with a panel of current and former elected officials and public policy experts.

Project Pericles will provide a $3,000 award to the students who submit the best letter. In consultation with Project Pericles, the students can use this money to fund advocacy and education activities including lobbying trips and workshops. Letters must be submitted to your Project Pericles Program Director by February 2. For submission guidelines, click here.

The D4D conference will bring student leaders from each of the 28 Periclean colleges and university to Pace for workshops, keynote addresses, and panel discussions that will introduce students to experts from the world of civic engagement, education, environment, politics, public policy, and social entrepreneurship.

Wanna Win a Wii?

Who doesn’t? If you’re a Lubin student and can capture the personality of Lubin in a short video, then you’ve got a pretty good shot at taking home a Nintendo Wii Gaming System and other prizes. Contest deadline extended until December 31.

Are you the next Steven Spielberg or just want to show off your video skills? Well, then it’s time to get started on a 3-5 minute video showcasing the personality of the Lubin School of Business.  

You can shine a spotlight on your fave Lubin professor; tell us why you chose Lubin; show us a day in the life of a Lubin student; give us a glimpse into your summer internship; highlight your favorite Lubin org or honor society. As long as it’s got some Lubin, Lubin, and more Lubin, send it on over. Every submission will enter you in a raffle to win some Lubin swag: beach chairs, laptop bags, portfolios, hooded sweatshirts, and more. The grand prize winner, which will be selected by a judging panel, will receive a Nintendo Wii game system!

Submit your entry to the Lubin Video Contest by December 31.

Don’t have a video camera? Don’t let that stop you–you can borrow one from your campus library for up to three days at the Technical Help Desk, first floor at the Mortola Library in PLV, and in the second floor Collaborative Learning Room at Birnbaum Library in NYC.

It’s Showtime at the Schimmel

Now you don’t have to trek up to the Apollo to catch an amateur night that will knock your socks off. On November 11, P.A.C.E Board looks for the next big thing and has $2,300 in prizes to give away. Are you who they’re looking for

In one week, students will sing, dance, and showcase some other extraordinary (or just plain weird) talent on the Schimmel Theater stage for a chance at prizes and recognition at P.A.C.E. Board’s Amateur Night.  Prizes include two $400 vocal and non-vocal prizes, a $400 group prize, and a $1,000 overall prize.

If you’re not performing, you can still participate in the event–and we don’t just mean watching this awesome showcase. Where Randy, Paula, Kara, Ellen, Simon, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler should sit will be you. No, they’re not looking for a few judges; they’re looking for a few hundred. A la Amateur Night at the Apollo, students will be the judge of who’s the best. If you love the performer, wave your green glowlight; If you don’t, wave the red.

Additionally, a celebrity comedian host will have you LOLing when you’re not OMGing at the talent here at Pace. Who is it? Well, it’s the star ABC’s hit 90’s show Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper and one of the hosts of Showtime at the Apollo Marc Curry.

Be at the Schimmel on November 11 at 7:00 p.m. sharp.

Follow P.A.C.E Board on Facebook and Twitter for the latest on news and events.

Scavenger Hunt

Want to win American Express, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes gift cards? How about an iPod Nano or Touch? Well, it’s P.A.C.E Board scavenger hunt time!

 P.A.C.E. Board is hosting a three-part scavenger hunt series. For the next couple of months, all you have to do is follow them on Twitter and/or join their Facebook group and you’ll get clues about the prizes.

The first part kicked off on September 13 and there’s already a first clue out, so get a move on it! Here’s what else you need to know:

The prize is a $50 American Express gift card and it’s hidden in a secret location. From now until September 27, P.A.C.E Board will Facebook, tweet, and announce at their general meetings clues that will direct you to the location. The final clue will be announced at Fall Fest, so you’re going to have to be there. On Sunday, September 26 they will hide the certificate and Monday morning students will be informed to begin their search. Winners will be photographed.

We’re going to keep you posted about series two: $50 Barnes and Nobles gift card and iPod nano, and series three: iPod Touch and $25 iTunes gift card over the next couple of weeks!
