$7 million Adult Literacy XPRIZE awards to advance adult education

The Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE, presented by Dollar General Literacy Foundation, is a competition challenging teams of developers (software, game and app), educators, engineers and innovators to create mobile literacy learning applications for the adult learner. The finalists teams’ solutions must demonstrate that they can substantially improve the literacy proficiency of adults reading at or below a third grade level, as measured by the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS), within a 12-month period.

The XPRIZE will award $7 million dollars to finalists and winners across several different categories, with a $4 million grand prize.
