Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham's AmritaCREATE (Amrita Center for Research in Advanced Technologies for Education) was selected to be one of five finalist teams for the $7M Barbara Bush Foundation's Adult Literacy XPRIZE in an awards ceremony on June 25, 2018, in New Orleans. This global competition challenges teams to develop reading apps for android devices. The AmritaCREATE team has been selected from among 109 teams representing 15 countries. Winning teams are judged by an increase in literacy skills among participating adult learners. Each finalist team has been awarded $100K. In early 2019, a $3M grand prize will be awarded to the team whose app demonstrates the best performance across all adult learners over a usage period of 15 months.
