App makers: Build an app that
the world will notice.
Welcome to the 2016 AdMob Student App Challenge. If you’re a student with a great idea for an app, here’s your chance to build your app, learn how to make money from it, and win awesome prizes. Just make sure you enter by June 28, 2016.
What’s at stake
The Grand Prize winner will score a week-long trip to San Francisco, including a visit to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View. We’ll feature your app on the Google Play Store and produce a video starring you and your app. You’ll also take home a nifty bag of goodies, including a Google device.
Four regional finalists will take home Google devices and have their app featured on the AdMob website. For more information on the prizes, please see the official rules.Watch our video

Build your app
First, make sure you review the judging criteria and AdMob’s policies. Then come up with a great idea and build an app you’ll be proud of. Make sure you sign up for a new AdMob account so you can install the Google Mobile Ads SDK, which enables your app to show ads from AdMob — and lets you start earning money. To learn more about monetization, see our guides. And for general help building your app, check out our resources.
Send us your app and business report
After your app is approved, use this form to send us your mobile app and AdMob ID, and this form to submit your business report. Here’s an example report and template you can use to write your report. Just make sure you submit everything no later than June 28, 2016. On August 25, 2016, we’ll announce one global winner.
