Apple has opened up the WWDC 2021 Swift Student Challenge, with students capable of acquiring prizes for creating a Swift Playgrounds experience. Winners will win WWDC 2021 gear, a customized pin set, and membership in the Apple Developer Program for one year.
The annual challenge, held beside the main WWDC event, encourages the younger generation developers to work inside Swift by utilizing the Swift Playgrounds app. For WWDC 2021, the Swift Student Challenge returns with the same task of challenging students to build a scene inside Swift Playgrounds.
The submitted project needs to implement an interactive scene that can be experienced within three minutes. Apple suggests using templates within Swift Playgrounds or Xcode as a headstart and then for participants to add their graphics, audio, and other components.

Under the rules, an individual, not a group, needs to be created, including third-party open-source licensed code and public domain pictures and sound with proper crediting. The content should be in English and formatted in a ZIP file measuring 25MB or less.
The deadline for submissions is April 18, at 11:59 pm PT. Participants will be capable of viewing the status of their entry on June 1.
Apple Announces WWDC 2021
Apple today announced that WWDC 2021 would return to its usual spot in early June. The annual Worldwide Developers Conference will be carried on June 7-11 and would be an all-online format accessible for all developers.
The Worldwide Developers Conference traditionally boots off with a keynote at 10 am PT on the opening day of the event, June 7, that will “offer unique insight into the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.” New Apple silicon-powered iMacs and MacBooks are rumored to appear this time and may make an appearance at the event.” and let's hope we get a few more surprises as well.
