Two weeks to go – submit early!

There are two weeks remaining in the USDA Innovation Challenge. Submissions are due October 27 before 5pm ET. Find out what time that is in your city.

If you haven't started a submission yet, please do so now. And if you've just recently joined the hackathon, explore the quick-start guide and draw some inspiration from the competition resources and data sets.

Submission checklist

Before you say "ship it!", make sure you run through this list:

  • Have you explained how your app or data visualization helps support farmers and build a sustainable U.S. food supply? Have you demonstrated your integration of one of the required USDA data sets?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video clearly demonstrate how your solution works? Is it no more than five minutes long? (Tip: How to make a great submission video)
  • Have you included at least one or more screenshots of your solution?
  • Did you include step-by-step testing instructions, including instructions for how to download or access your solution for testing, as well as login instructions if a login is required?

Be sure to read through the official rules more than once. Or better yet, have a friend or colleague provide a second pair of eyes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Good luck!
