About this Project:

The problem many immigrants are facing when crossing the border from Mexico to the US is that it can be dangerous.

We discovered this problem because many of our family members have struggled to make it to the U.S.

Many have died while sailing to the United States due to starvation and dehydration.

What we want to do is prevent this from ever happening again.

We created an app called go for green. Our app can help people get green cards so they could cross the border legally. It will allow immigrants to live and work permanently in the United States.

Immigrants could get a green card to go to America.

Our project works by giving information about the process of becoming a citizen.

A green card is something that people need to be legal . During what is usually is very stressful time, this app will help immigrants find a path to citizenship with ease. If we had time or resources we could have added more details.

Getting a green card for people in need !

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Innovation Designer at IBM — Emoti-Con Judge
Great job in tackling such a large issue with a solution that is so actionable and practical. Your presentation showcases your concept clearly and concisely. Applying for a green card can be a complex process, and your solution can help provide the hand holding that many applicants can benefit from. It's wonderful to see that you've considered tailoring the application steps for each user's individual scenario. For next steps, consider exploring different ways your solution can help empower green card applicants and fleshing out the steps for guiding them through the application process. Would love to see your style guide used in this way. Excited to see where this project takes your team and please keep working on this concept!

👏 Design Engineering Manager at GAF Energy — Emoti-Con Judge
Really simple and effective idea that would be useful to so many people. This process is difficult to understand even at the best of times so to have something like this that walks the user through each step of the process would be a game changer! The simplicity of the idea is what makes it so good - problem is clearly defined and the solution is on the next page!!!

👏 Head of Design at Ringlet — Emoti-Con Judge
