Last year’s Hackathon: The 2019 hackathon was a 7-hour brainstorming and idea-development competition to solve critical regional issues such as:

  • Education
  • Jobs
  • Environment
  • Transportation

The Hackathon revealed how the youth are driven to solve Hudson Valley employability and professional sustainability challenges. We were excited to see that we are all aligned in our dream of making the Hudson Valley a better place to live and work, and leveraging technology as a practical tool for this rising tide!
