The stakes just got a tad higher for this Saturday’s Open Gov ‘News’ Hackathon presented by Tropo.

The hackathon, dedicated to building tools that help inform local communities, will take place for the second year during the fourth annual BarCamp NewsInnovation presented by the Center for Public Interest Journalism.

REGISTER HERE.

The new Temple University-housed CPIJ has taken an interest in encouraging a focus on mobile tools, which can impact low-income communities more as mobile proliferates where broadband doesn’t.

To do so, the Center will put $3,000 worth of prizes, including gift cards, swag, gadgets and the like toward the best projects this Saturday.

Meet the judges and judging criteria here. Check the schedule of the day here. See some early project pitch ideas here.
