More information about the HVTechFest Hackathon 2020:

Our signature HVTechFest Youth Hackathon 2020 will :
- Use hi-tech and low-tech functions to solve the public problems;
- Team professionals together with youth to build a digital artifact or prototype
- Gain entrepreneurial spirit while introducing collaborative ways of problem solving

In 2020, the theme of the hackathon is Tech-Driven Recovery in the Hudson Valley and beyond. We'd like to address Social Distancing Challenge and Digital Divide Challenge, but we welcome all challenges and ideas.

Due to venue restrictions and safety as our top priority, we will:
- have a single remote-first, virtual Hackathon this Fall on October 23-24.
- reschedule our HVTechFest conference for Spring 2021 to combine an in-person and remote experience. Stay tuned!
