The AT&T Tech Valley Civic App Challenge is a two-month “virtual hackathon” for Tech Valley software developers, coders, innovative thinkers, designers, artists, and entrepreneurs to leverage data to create intuitive and novel mobile apps that address social and civic issues in the Tech Valley region.
Submissions Due Online: *Friday, May 1st -11:59 PM*
Demo & Awards: @The University Hall Atrium, University at Albany: *Thursday, May 14th-10 AM*
Apps submitted to the challenge will be judged on potential impact on the Tech Valley region, execution and creativity/novelty. To make the challenge truly Tech Valley-centric, teams submitting mobile apps must include at least one member that is a current resident of the 19 counties that make up the region (Albany, Clinton, Columbia, Dutchess, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Orange, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Ulster, Warren, and Washington) or attends one of the region’s institutions of higher education.
