Applications for the VL Innovators Challenge are closed as of September 10, 2014. The winners were announced at Voto Latino’s 10-year anniversary gala.

Winners of the VL Innovators Challenge include Millennial-led projects that sought to cultivate a pool of Latino tech talent and find innovative solutions to problems in the Latino community. The VL Innovators Challenge was part of the Connected Learning movement, an educational approach that makes learning relevant to everyone, to real life and real work, and to the realities of the digital age. This Competition built upon the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of Latino Millennials to develop tools and strategies to solve some of our country’s most pressing challenges.
