2017 Future of Technology Summit Essay Competition

The 2017 Future of Technology Summit Essay Competition is a nationwide search for the most creative, thoughtful, and well-presented student ideas on technology of the future—what problems it might solve, and what problems it might create.

One winner from each age group—middle School (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12) will be selected by our panel of university and corporate tech experts to participate in the 2017 Future of Technology Summit, a prestigious one day conference taking place in Washington, DC on November 2, 2017.

At the conference, student essay award winners will be recognized and have the chance to meet our panel of accomplished tech influencers including Steve Wozniak, cofounder Apple Inc, Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering Google, Martin Eberhard, cofounder and former CEO of Tesla Motors, Chris C. Kemp, Former CTO NASA Prof. Mary Cummings, Associate professor Duke University, Randi Zuckerberg, author and founder of Zuckerberg Media, and neuroscientist Dr. Boris Konrad.

The conference will bring together these notable minds in tech along with national and international leaders to discuss the same issues addressed by students in the essay competition—how will technology change the way we live, work, learn, and connect in the future? The purpose of the student essay competition is to have the voice of the next generation represented during the conference, as our young people will live the longest with the decisions and tech advancements we make today.
