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. We admire your passion and use of Apple technologies, and we can't wait to see how you'll continue to code new worlds.

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.

You‘d think one of the most valuable companies in the world could do better than a sweatshirt and some AirPods. Why not a MacBook Pro? After all these are potential future Apple developers, shouldn’t Apple encourage them to, you know, develop on Apple?

Right, it's so pathetic. Greed and cheapness, that's how we'll remember the bean counter.
