Privacy and Tracking in the KITE STEM Challenge app

Here is the screen a user will see in the app after they identify their grade and school. Personal info is completely optional, and only needed if the student would like to be entered into drawings for individual prizes such as Pacific Science Center memberships or Google swag. It isn’t necessary to enter any personal info into the app; a student can still compete for their school completely anonymously.

Any personal info entered will only be used in order to contact the winning students, and will be discarded following the contest.
