    Tech Forum presents our 4th Annual Idea Challenge - this year as part of The Open Data Challenge - a partnership with the State of Delaware's Government Information Center and Open Data DelawareThe Open Data Challenge will help to build tangible, sustainable solutions for community issues using innovation and data from the State's new Open Data Portal.

    We have an exciting new theme this year - "Access to Hope Through Innovation". Teams, such as Eugene Young's Network Delaware and The Food Bank of Delaware, will compete to demonstrate that innovation, collaboration and passion can create solutions to important issues such as access to housing, food, education, healthcare and other resources.

    Winning ideas generated at the 2017 Idea Challenge will move forward to Open Data Delaware's National Day of Civic Hacking in June where teams will have the opportunity to win cash prizes to implement their projects. 

    Join us for this high energy, entertaining and motivating event!
