This particular challenge is part of Open Data Delaware’s 4th Annual Idea Challenge. The theme is “Access to Hope Through Innovation,” and teams will be asked to use open data to create solutions for intractable social problems such as access to housing, food and healthcare services.

Registration for the event is open, and interested parties can participate in one of two ways: As a team member actively working on an idea or as an audience member tasked with evaluating participants.


The challenge will take place on March 15 at Wilmington coworking space 1313 Innovation. The winning team will participate in Open Data Delaware’s National Day of Civic Hacking event in June. There, teams will compete to win cash for their projects.
