The American multinational technology company Amazon has joined forces with singer, rapper, songwriter and record producer Pharrell Williams to launch a new music remix competition called “Your Voice Is Power.” This contest was created to inspire students to pursue Computer Science.
The first round of the competition will run from January 19th through March 12th, while the second round will run from March 15th through June 4th. Winners will be chosen based on the quality of music, complexity and organization of their code; as well as their inclusion of thoughtful messaging and calls to action about the importance of racial justice.
“Your Voice Is Power” is open to all middle and high school students in both Canada and the United States. Click here for additional information.
