Solve a Family History Challege and Win $5,000! Must Register by 1 January 2012!


Have you recently been doing something family or genealogy-related and thought, "There should be an app for that!"? Now is your chance. Solving that problem and entering the RootsTech 2012 Developer Challenge could earn you $5,000.

Tens of millions of people around the world are interested in some facet of family history. These people need software solutions—whether on the desktop, online, or through mobile delivery—that help them engage and succeed in their efforts to discover, preserve, and share their family history. RootsTech will reward developers who introduce the most innovative new concepts to family history with $10,000 in cash rewards and increased visibility.

Visit the Developer Challenge page on RootsTech.org to find out more about rules, prizes and deadlines. Developers wishing to enter the challenge must register by January 1, 2012 but actual submissions are not due until January 15. Spread the word and register today!
