On Saturday, June 6, Code for Northern Virginia is hosting a hackathon during the National Day of Civic Hacking, from 8:00am-9:00pm at the Durant Center,1605 Cameron Street.

During the hackathon, technology specialists (such as coders and designers) combine forces with policy makers and nonprofit organizations to use technology to solve organizational challenges and issues in the community.  

Code for Northern Virginia and ACTion invite nonprofit organizations serving Alexandria to submit your technology challenges or ideas. One submitted idea will be selected by a panel of judges to be pitched during the hackathon on June 6. Based on project pitches, a team of tech enthusiasts will then choose projects and work on developing solutions. The selected nonprofit will also win $100 from ACTion Alexandria!
