The first place team will take home $2,500 (split equally among teams), while the second and third place teams will each take home $1,500 and $1,000, respectively. Additionally, the team with the best functional prototype (MVP) will receive a separate cash award of $1,000.
The hackathon is being held in tandem with Code for America’s annual National Day of Civic Hacking, an annual day of action to convene coders, bureaucrats, data scientists, journalists, user experience designers, and community activists to tackle big problems. Join us at Hack for Savannah, where we’ll tackle the twin issues of urban resiliency and disaster response in partnership with Chatham Emergency Management Agency.
