To participate in the challenge, you would
team up in a group of three – with two other
developers – to create innovative bots on
Facebook Messenger under the following
three categories namely: gaming and
entertainment; productivity and utility; and
social good.

After the challenge, there would be three
winners which would be picked from each of
the categories – one from each – and they’ll
win a whooping sum of $20,000 coupled with
three (3) months of mentorship from
Facebook.

each region) will win a Gear VR and a mobile
