WWDC 2023 Swift Student Challenge winners have been notified, and will receive a gift set along with entry into a lottery for an in-person event ticket.
Apple holds the Swift Student Challenge each year to encourage student developers to practice their craft and win prizes. Participants have to be over 13, part of an academic institution or homeschool equivalent, and not employed as a full-time developer.
Winners are being notified by email, and Apple Senior Director, Worldwide Developer Marketing Esther Hare, shared the news on Twitter. Participants can also check their status by logging into their developer account.
