Technovation Girls Competition 2022 for Global Problem Solvers

Technovation annual invites for teams of young girls around the globe is here again with a new dimension. Technovation is introducing a new beginner division open to ages 8-12 and a new technology option.

These teams of girls are going to learn and put in skills required to solve a real-life problem through the use of technology.

The Beginner Division of Technovation 

This is a new division for younger students and it will be open to girls of ages 8-12. The new division structure will be:

  • The Beginner Division: ages 8-12
  • Junior Division: ages 13-15
  • and Senior Division: ages 16-18

The new Technology Option

The girls now have a choice of selection for their submission project. The girls will still be learning to create technology to solve community problems but from this edition, they have a choice to select between either developing an AI-powered prototype or a mobile application prototype as their submission project.


Any girl or woman between the ages of 8-18 years of age is eligible to participate. Transgender people and those who identify as non-binary or gender nonconforming and want to be a part of a female-identified space are welcome.

To join the competition, a girl must join or form a team on technovation online platform. The girl’s guardian /parent must sign the consent form and meet the listed Student Participation Criteria:

  • All students must be of age 8-18 years of age.
  • Students must identify as female, trans, nonbinary, or gender nonconforming. Students who self-identify as male or assigned male at birth can not enter the competition.
  • Teams are to be between 1-5 students. Students are eligible to join 1 team. Though, there isn’t any number limit on mentors per team.
  • The competition divisions are going to be based on the age of the eldest on the team. This means if a 13 years old is in a team of 12 years old, the team will be judged in the Junior division. 
  • Students can participate in Technovation Girls for more than one season until the age of 18. You are allowed to work with the same team members and mentors but with a different submission material. Also, the team can explore the same problem but the app prototype must differ each year.
