Congratulations! You took it to a whole new level. You're a confirmed WWDC2023 Swift Student Challenge Winner.

That's why we're excited to present you with this year's exclusive, well-earned reward.

Apple hosts an annual Swift Student Challenge as part of the WWDC festivities. Students are tasked with creating an innovative coding project using Apple's Swift Playgrounds app. Apple required an interactive scene able to be experienced in three minutes, with students judged on technical accomplishment, creativity of ideas, and content of written responses explaining the project and other app development experience.


Some Swift Student Challenge winners will be invited to attend the special event that Apple plans to hold at Apple Park on June 5, with attendees picked using a lottery system.
