Quick-start guide

Thanks for joining the USDA Innovation Challenge! You're officially registered now, and we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the hackathon.

Here’s how to get started on your project today. Submissions are due October 27, 2015, at 5pm ET.

  1. Plan your attack. Visit the resources page to learn more about submission categories, required data sets, and brainstorming questions to get your ideas flowing.
  2. Get a head start on your submission. Fill out the basic fields on the application form and save it as a draft today. This will give you a good idea of what you'll need to put together before the deadline.
  3. Optional: Form a team. Thinking about buddying up? Visit the participants page to find and meet teammates.

We can't wait to see what you'll create. Good luck!

We’re here to help. If you have any questions about the challenge, post on the discussion forum or email and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
