Hackathon

 

Join us for the second annual Congressional App Challenge Hackathon hosted by Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) and Congressman David Price (NC-04). Students that attend the Hackathon will have the opportunity to meet with mentors, complete an exercise in design thinking, and receive tips from public relations professionals on mastering a "pitch". Students will have the opportunity to work in teams to start, develop, or complete an app for the challenge.

Please bring a laptop for the Hackathon. If you would like to participate, but do not have access to a laptop, please email Katelynn Anderson in Rep. Price's office at Katelynn.Anderson@mail.house.gov.

Lunch and snacks will be provided!

The winning app will be featured in an interactive display in the United States Capitol. Additionally, Amazon Web Services has announced that it is providing $250 in credits to the winning team to be used for cloud computing services to be split among the winners nationwide (with parental consent). All participants will also be recognized by Congressman Price at a reception at the Friday Institute at NC State on Thursday, November 16. Teachers and administrators will also be invited to attend.
