Description

The fifth annual Houston Hackathon—hosted by Sketch City, Houston’s Code for America brigade—is a weekend focused on improving the city through tech solutions to issues with traffic, voter registration, or recycling programs, just to name a few. We are a diverse and passionate group with lots of ideas about how to make our city better. The hackathon connects participants with local government leaders and other civic experts who serve as a source of knowledge for the teams. The 24-hour event ends with the submission and judgement of the projects by a panel of community members. The winning teams have the opportunity to meet with the Mayor and get support from Sketch City to bring their project to life.
