About this event

How can technology help us build a better world? The Solution Challenge is Google's global annual contest that invites all Google Developer Student Club members (including you!) to develop solutions to real world problems utilizing Google technologies. This year’s Solution Challenge asks participants to solve for one or more of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Since 2019, thousands of students have participated in the Solution Challenge and have coded their way to a better world!

  • Awards: Top 50 Global Finalists and top winners receive mentorship from Google, cash prizes, swag, besides a great project (and story) to their portfolios!
  • Timeline: Solution Challenge teams (up to four people) can register and submit a project between January 11 - March 31, 2022. In this timeframe you can work on your project at your own pace.
