SKT Coding Challenge for Youth with Disabilities 


#Competition Background

"My problem-solving skills, coding, and artificial intelligence skills have improved."

'SKT Disabled Youth Coding Challenge that can improve core competencies in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution 


SK Telecom held the 'Disabled Youth ICT Competition' every year to bridge the information gap among disabled youth and promote interest and understanding of information and communication technology (ICT). It also operates a Happy Coding School for disabled youth.

In 2019, the Korea Federation of Persons with Disabilities operated the ICT Make-a-thon Competition in parallel with the coding demonstration competition, and in 2021, SK Telecom and the Korea Federation of Persons with Disabilities jointly hosted the said event every year to bridge the ICT information gap for disabled youth, and KBS Media and ALUX held the 'Happiness Coding Challenge' competition.


The Coding Challenge competition provides an opportunity for disabled youth to explore career paths as problem-solving skills, coding, and the ability to utilize artificial intelligence are core competencies in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. They will have the opportunity to improve their problem-solving, coding, and artificial intelligence skills through pre-competition preparation, teamwork activities, participation in competitions, and experience in booth management.
